Women with a Mission Springfield

The Power of Giving Together

As Women with a Mission, we strive to continue the mission of Mercy’s founder, Catherine McAuley. For more than seven generations, Mercy has established a legacy of care giving and commitment marked by compassion and excellence that continues today.

The Women with a Mission Society combines resources, vision and passion for helping others to support and improve health care in the Springfield community. In the spirit of Catherine McAuley, the Society brings together women who share the common goal of making a difference. Women with a Mission leverages the power of giving together.


Membership is open to all women who support the mission of Mercy throughout the Springfield community with a $1,000 annual gift. Each year, the Society identifies health care needs within Mercy. Each member is an equal partner in the decision-making process, and 100 percent of each gift directly supports the project(s) selected.

Women with a Mission gathers quarterly for educational and social events. While attendance is encouraged, it is not required.
