Misericordia is aware of the ongoing concern regarding COVID-19
(Coronavirus) and the risks associated with this virus. The safety
of our residents and staff and of our patrons from the community
is the number one priority at Misericordia. In lieu of this mounting
serious concern some of our annual events have been postponed

or changed to virtual events. Thank you for your patience and

understanding during these uncertain times.

Misericordia hosts a number of significant events throughout the year. There are many corporate sponsorship packages that are visible to a broad spectrum of audiences.

We believe there is significant value that is derived from being an event sponsor by one of our corporate partners. Customers and employees appreciate the important role their company plays in the community, by supporting worthwhile not for profit organizations like Misericordia. An association with Misericordia enhances the brand of Chicagoland companies given Misericordia's outstanding reputation for serving the needs of the developmentally disabled population in Chicago.

Please consider in being a Corporate sponsor for one of our events.
