Making A Difference is not just about providing financial aid, it is about providing an opportunity for a young girl to attend Mercy, an opportunity which can change her life forever.

Mercy High School has always offered tuition assistance to our students. This commitment allows us to fulfill our mission of educating young women of all economic backgrounds. However, rising costs and a challenging economy make it difficult for many families to afford a Mercy education. This program is a crucial source of funding for our tuition assistance program. Funding for Mercy’s tuition assistance comes from individual donations, foundations, grants, endowment interest and the “Making A Difference” Program.

Through “Making A Difference,” we have raised over $1,700,000 for tuition assistance. The Benefit is underwritten by the Board of Directors; 100% of all sponsorships and donations directly assist girls in need of financial aid. We began this program in 2004 raising a little under $25,000 the first year with 51 guests. Making A Difference has grown to be a signature event at Mercy drawing a sell-out crowd of 230 guests and raising nearly $282,000 in 2016.

As the event has grown, we are excited to have a new location which will allow more guests to attend.

Please join us at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront in Burlingame for an amazing evening.
