Saint Mary’s Foundation is dedicated to building relationships that inspire financial support from the community to advance the mission of Mercy Health Saint Mary’s.

A longtime doctor at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s, Frank Doran was the perfect example of what a physician should be — generous, compassionate and dedicated to his patients. In 1964, several of his friends created the Doran Foundation to benefit Saint Mary’s Hospital in his honor and, today, his legacy lives on because of contributions from people like you.

Over the years the Saint Mary’s campus has grown and transitioned to better serve its patients and families. Through philanthropy and stewardship, the Saint Mary’s Foundation has supported Mercy Health Saint Mary’s in fulfilling its mission of improving the health of our community.

Our purpose is to ensure your generosity is making an impact on the patients and families we serve.

Since 1964, the Foundation has awarded more than $70 million to transformational projects, programs and services including the Mercy Health Lacks Cancer Center, Mercy Health Hauenstein Neurosciences Center, and Sophia’s House. Additionally, programs such as Clinica Santa Maria, Mercy Health Wege Institute for Mind Body Spirit, Kidney Transplant Program and Diabetes & Endocrine Center have received considerable support to enhance the patient and family experience.

We invite you to join us in commemorating our exciting journey moving forward as we continue to transform the health of our community.
