Mercy Foundation presents its 2012-13 honor roll of donors. | 10
President’s message During the holiday season as we take the opportunity to count our own blessings, it is appropriate that we at Mercy Foundation stop and thank you, our charitable partners, for all you do to sustain Sisters of Mercy ministries.
Cristo Rey students combine a rigorous college preparatory curriculum with work at local businesses.
Cristo Rey High School: Helping Sacramento students dream big For all too many children in our community, academic achievement can appear out of reach. Burdened by poverty and limited resources, many young adults never follow their education through to high school graduation. Cristo Rey High School offers these students another option – one full of the promise of a future that is not bound by the challenges of their background or where they grow up. “At Cristo Rey, it is our goal that the cycle of poverty that engulfs our students’ lives will be broken,” says President Sr. Eileen Enright, RSM. “Our mission is to provide a Catholic, college preparatory education to motivated students with limited financial means. We want to help each child succeed.” All Cristo Rey High School students participate in a unique work-study program. Students spend four extended days per week at school undertaking a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. They also work five days per month at one of more than 100 local businesses in the Sacramento region. “These real-world positions help students acquire skills that reinforce what they are learning in the classroom,” explains Sr. Eileen. “These are priceless skills, both in school and in life.” Today, just seven short years after welcoming its first students, Cristo Rey is a vibrant, Continued on page 2
Last month, we held our McAuley & Legacy Societies celebration, recognizing donors with cumulative giving of $10,000 to over $1,000,000 and those who have chosen to support Mercy Foundation in their estate plans. As I reflect upon that evening, I cannot help but smile as I think about the diverse group of people in attendance who are all committed to taking action to help those less fortunate in our community, and in doing so, transforming and saving lives. In this issue of Horizons, you will read a small sampling of the impact that you are making on these people every day, as well as get to know others, like you, who are committed to making a difference! Whatever your philanthropic passion, I assure you that you are achieving what you are intending to do – making a difference in the lives of others. On behalf of Mercy Foundation, and those who benefit from your generosity, I wish you many blessings for which you can be thankful at this time of year. Happy holidays,
President and CEO

dynamic school with a student body of roughly 315 young men and women. To date, 98 percent of the school’s 200plus graduates have been accepted into colleges and universities, including some of the most esteemed schools in the nation. At capacity, the school will serve 400 students – a goal which will allow the school to be financially sustainable.
However, reaching that goal of a student body of 400 young adults will not come easily. The school has outgrown – both in size and function – the small facility it currently occupies on the grounds of St. Peter’s Parish in South Sacramento. The facility was originally designed as an elementary school, so its restrooms, water fountains and other physical features are designed for small children, not young adults. In addition, even with five portable classrooms that have been added, Cristo Rey is at capacity. Its technology offerings are also dated and insufficient.
“We, as a school, need to offer students an environment that is aesthetically pleasing and conducive to education,” says Sr. Eileen. “We need to expose them to technology that will help them to succeed in college and prepare them for what is required of them in the work force.”
Cristo Rey High School helps prepare students to succeed in high school and beyond.
According to class of 2011 alumnus Katilyn Endcott, “Cristo Rey gave me the opportunity to learn skills that have impacted my entire life. Not only did it help me get into college
and succeed, but what I learned at Cristo Rey has changed how I live my life, day to day. I want the next generation of Cristo Rey students to have it even better and grow even more.”
Vision for Cristo Rey fueled by passionate president For Sr. Eileen Enright, RSM, who began her role as president of Cristo Rey High School two years ago, it was the natural culmination of decades spent working in Catholic education serving young students and their families. However, her passion for education – in particular, education for underserved children – dates back much further. “When I was a girl, the principal at my school approached my father and told him how important it was that I continue my education through high school,” she recalled.
Sister Eileen Enright, RSM
The memory of that day, still sharp in her mind, brings tears and gratitude. “That man changed my life. He knew that education is the way out of poverty, and I don’t know where I’d be today if it weren’t for his initiative.”
Sr. Eileen went on to complete high school. While still in school, she became intrigued when several orders of religious women visited her high school. Although her father initially dismissed her requests to learn more, he eventually relented and gave his blessing. After completing her novitiate at the Sisters of Mercy in Auburn, Sr. Eileen earned a college degree and launched a long career in education. Over the course of 25 years, she served as teacher, principal and associate superintendant for Catholic schools in the Sacramento Diocese. Sr. Eileen also worked for 15 years in Bishop William Weigand’s office, first as director of lay personnel, then as chancellor and director of research and planning. Today Sr. Eileen’s enduring enthusiasm for education can be seen as she strolls the Cristo Rey campus and chats with students. She focuses her passion and drive toward gathering support for Cristo Rey’s future needs. “It is all about the students – what can we do to help them – to make sure they succeed. We cannot stop for a second."
Providing a brighter future thanks to a common past what they are doing here,” says Nancy. “We want to support them any way we can and to encourage them to continue the fabulous work they are doing.”
children in upstate New York – he was the camp doctor and she was a camp counselor. The Marks settled in Sacramento in 1956 after Dennis served in the army in Tokyo. Dr. Marks practiced pediatrics in the Arden area for 30 years while he and Nancy raised their four children. They became active in the community supporting various philanthropic projects. “My passions include our church, the developmentally disabled, pediatric hospitals, education and the arts,” says Nancy. For them, Cristo Rey and its mission to provide a college preparatory education to underserved students was a natural choice. “My parents were immigrants from Greece,” recalls Dennis. “No one in my family had graduated from college before, but they always supported me.”
That giving spirit toward children is something that Dennis felt very early on in his life. As a 5-yearold growing up Dr. Dennis and Nancy Marks are proud to support Sister Eileen in New York City, Enright (center) and her vision for quality education for all. he watched as the neighborhood doctor saved his young cousin who was Dr. Dennis and Nancy Marks are two Dennis and Nancy hope that through their dying from pneumonia.

Working with Mercy Foundation, Dennis and Nancy directed $500,000 through their donor advised fund to Cristo Rey earmarked for a proposed new facility. They also have committed an additional $500,000 to Mercy Foundation over the next five years in support of Cristo Rey’s program enhancements. President Eileen Enright, RSM, and Cristo Rey students will benefit from the Marks' generosity “We are so impressed by for years to come.

Dr. Hwang's healing philosophy includes charitable giving At Mercy General Hospital’s Acute Rehabilitation unit, which has been serving patients for more than 25 years, staff work with patients who have a wide range of physical issues, helping them develop new skills, relearn lost skills and make the adjustments needed to live and enjoy a life of independence.
“For someone with a physical limitation due to a stroke or head injury, the world can suddenly seem filled with insurmountable obstacles that need to be relearned to navigate," says Dr. Hwang.
Dr. Albert Hwang, Mercy General Hospital
Albert Hwang, MD, Mercy General Hospital’s Acute Rehabilitation Unit medical director since 2007, has a calm, unhurried nature and is determined to give the best to his patients.
“Currently, rehab patients and their therapists have to practice outside at the entrance to the Acute Rehab building, in the alley or in the parking garage,” Dr. Hwang continues. “With the new Outdoor Rehab area, patients will have a safe, private environment where they can work on re-learning important skills.”
Part of Dr. Hwang’s philosophy includes philanthropy. It was his generosity that put funding for the much-needed Outdoor Rehabilitation project at Mercy General Hospital over the top, allowing construction on the project to begin immediately. Funding for the $125,000 project involved two major donors who believed in the project and Mercy General’s employee community through Employees Lend a Hand. When it was time to begin construction, but the goal hadn’t yet been reached, Dr. Hwang stepped forward with a charitable gift. “It was the first time I’ve made a gift to Mercy Foundation,” says Dr. Hwang. “I’m pleased that I’m one of so many who have stepped forward to make a difference.”
Why I support Employees Lend a Hand Claudia Nakata, manager of Quality Performance Programs for Dignity Health Medical Foundation, has participated in Employees Lend a Hand (ELAH) for most of the six years she’s been with the organization. Claudia understands that what may seem like a small gesture can add up to big results. “I’ve always focused my ELAH charitable giving into the ‘area of greatest need,’ ” says Claudia. “I want the experts to make the decision as to where my donation will make the most impact." Funds raised through ELAH support such Sisters of Mercy ministries as local Dignity Health hospitals, Sacramento Loaves & Fishes, Mercy clinics, Mercy Housing and Cristo Rey High School. For example, at Sacramento Loaves & Fishes, a private charity that relies solely on private donations to support its work of feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless, $40 feeds a homeless child a hot meal daily for a month. Claudia takes advantage of payroll deduction, a convenient way to give. Employees can also donate PTO (paid time off). Even contributing just one hour of PTO per pay period can make a difference. And, thanks to an operating grant from Dignity Health, 100 percent of a donor's gift to Mercy Foundation is directed to the ministry of their choosing. “In a previous job, I saw firsthand how individuals can be impacted by very difficult circumstances,” says Claudia. “I feel fortunate that I can do my part to try to help those in need.”

Donations in Action Alex G. Spanos Heart & Vascular Center
Thanks to a generous lead gift by the Alex G. Spanos family, and the support of many other generous donors, Mercy General Hospital has been able to construct the Alex G. Spanos Heart & Vascular Center, which is nearing completion. The four-story, 121,130-square-foot Center will house 71 private, family-friendly patient rooms; four new cardiovascular operating rooms; an expanded 21-bed cardiac ambulatory procedure area and a highly advanced 20-bed cardiac surgery intensive care unit. Post-construction activities include various events to celebrate the opening. Dates will be announced as they are finalized.
Folsom community comes together to make helipad happen On Oct. 9, close to 40 guests attended a mid-morning event at Mercy Hospital of Folsom to dedicate the Klein Family Helipad, and to honor the three major contributors, along with Folsom Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Clubs and many other generous individuals and organizations, who made the helipad possible: • • •
The Klein family Sevy and Neva Cimaroli The City of Folsom
“Emergency services are needed immediately in every community,” says Rod Klein. He and his wife, Mary Louise, were among those recognized for helping complete the important project through their generous giving. “When the helipad project was organized and they needed funds (to complete the project), I remembered that my own life was saved by a life-flight helicopter.” The helipad dedication also included a helicopter landing demonstration by CALSTAR (California Shock Trauma Air Rescue Ambulance), a nonprofit, regional air ambulance service. The helipad is the final element in the Emergency Department expansion at Mercy Hospital of Folsom and an important addition to the Cummings Emergency Pavilion. Prior to its construction, emergency responders struggled with several issues that impeded their ability to transport seriously injured or ill patients to or from the facility. These issues include congested traffic conditions during commute times and a growing population that will, at times, be in need of critical medical care. Mercy Folsom can now accept inbound patients and transport outbound patients to other facilities via air ambulance, providing a tremendous resource for patients, the hospital and the community.
Celebrating the dedication of the Klein Family Helipad at Mercy Folsom are (from left) daughter-in-law Lynda Klein, Rodney and Mary Louise Klein, and son Christopher Klein.

Honoring Mercy Foundation donors Sr. Eileen Enright thanks Mercy Foundation donor Agnes Anderson for her generous support over the years.
Mercy Foundation honored donors of $25,000 and above and planned giving donors at its annual McAuley and Legacy Societies Celebration, held Oct. 17 at the Center at Twenty-Three Hundred in Sacramento. A new Mercy Circle of Friends program was also introduced to recognize donors with cumulative giving reaching $10,000. The event included moving testimonies from those who lives have been impacted by the Sisters of Mercy ministries supported by the Foundation’s generous donors. For more information about how you can become part of the McAuley Society or Legacy Society, call (916) 851-2703.
