Catherine McAuley Circle

We are proud to host a Catherine McAuley Circle at each of our three Dignity Health hospitals. The Catherine McAuley Circle is a women’s philanthropic group supporting the efforts of Mercy Foundation North and the three North State Dignity Health Hospitals. These women meet three times a year at luncheon events, and as a group, direct Circle funds to the Hospital project in their area that they care about most. Because this is a philanthropic circle, each member is asked to contribute $1,000 a year.

An important benefit of belonging to the Catherine McAuley Circle is that members decide how their cumulative gift is spent. Please contact Mercy Foundation North at (530) 247-3424 or if you are interested in becoming a member of the Catherine McAuley Circle.
