Help Turn $15,000 Into $30,000!

With your Giving Tuesday donation to the Mercy Foundation, you're joining in a global day of giving - a generosity movement that takes place each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Your gift supports critical health needs and provides for the highest-quality, most advanced care possible. Your gift also carries on the compassionate and healing work that was initiated by the Sisters of Mercy more than 120 years ago.

Fairfax State Savings BankThis year, Fairfax State Savings Bank will match Giving Tuesday donations to the Mercy Foundation up to $15,000 total.

That means, with your help, we can turn $15,000 into $30,000.

A Life Worth Saving

Patrick Slater, president and board chair of Fairfax State Savings Bank, was inspired to initiate this challenge for Giving Tuesday after his recovery from quadruple bypass heart surgery, a procedure he received at Mercy .

“The kind of care you get matters,” said Slater. “I believe I’m alive today because of the care I received at Mercy. Now, I want to be a life worth saving. I want to do my part of make a difference. The caregivers at Mercy weren’t just going through the motions with me. They did their jobs with such sincerity, and not just one of them, but everyone. The Mercy Touch is so much more than a motto.”

Patrick, his family and Fairfax State Savings Bank have a long-standing legacy of supporting Mercy, including financial gifts to Hospice of Mercy, HallMar Village, the Family Caregivers Center, the Especially for You® Race Against Breast Cancer, cardiac services, and more. It’s a tradition that started with Patrick’s father, David Neuhaus, who he succeeded in leadership at Fairfax State Savings Bank.
