Mercy Health Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation partners with Blackbaud for agile, integrated fundraising and accounting.


Mercy Health Foundation draws on a 200-year heritage that spans continents. Despite its rich history, the four-state hospital network needed modern cloud solutions to deliver the most effective healing ministry in the digital age.

Mercy Health Foundation supports a hospital system committed to delivering a healing ministry through a network of hospitals and clinics in four states. But as patient care continues to shift away from traditional settings and toward virtual visits, fundraising strategy must adapt.

Kathleen Stacker, manager of data administration at the St. Louis-based foundation, looks to Blackbaud’s flagship fundraising and fund accounting solutions to scale alongside her team in a changing healthcare environment. “The patient experience is different, and you can no longer really rely on the patient list from a hospital, because they may not actually be admitted,” Stacker said. “We have to find those patient prospects another way, and the products that Blackbaud provides allow us to identify and track those patients so that we can really segment them and do the best job in tracking them so that the major gift officers have a better success rate.”
