Everything we do improves the way we care for people in need, across every age and stage of life. We raise and distribute funds to advance care and improve life outcomes for everyone in the community.
There are many ways to give to Mercy Health. Whatever the nature of your contribution, we can help you, your family, community, or organisation get involved and give to our incredible causes.
Mercy Health is a Catholic organisation grounded in a 2,000-year tradition of caring for others. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy, we provide a variety of hospital and healthcare services for physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing.

Every drop counts! Help us celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank.
In 2011, the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank opened at the Mercy Hospital for Women. Since then, we have opened satellite sites at the Monash Children’s Hospital, the Royal Children’s Hospital and the Royal Women’s Hospital.
The Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank is Victoria’s only breastmilk bank providing sick and premature babies with safe, screened and pasteurised milk
Our next goal is to expand the Mercy Health Breastmilk Bank service across Victoria, and to buy much-needed equipment such as freezers and pasteurising machines.
When my daughter entered the world at 28 weeks and three days, we were preparing for the worst. I had gone into labour, had heavy bleeding and an infection. As we prepared for the emergency caesarean section, my husband and I were terrified. We didn't know if our child would survive.
