The Mercy Fund - Parent Giving
The Mercy Fund is the new name of our annual giving program and encompasses the Parent Pledge Program.
The Mercy Fund is a critical source of funding for your daughter’s education. We seek 100% parent participation in the Parent Pledge Program.
We invite all families to consider making a commitment of $1,500 to The Mercy Fund. We strongly encourage those families with financial capacity to increase their gift to $2,500 or above – your support makes a difference.
Gifts of all levels make a huge impact, whether $10 or $50,000, participation matters. Families who receive financial assistance or face other financial challenges are asked to make a gift commensurate with their ability.
Tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of educating a young women at Mercy. This year, The Mercy Fund will offset tuition by more than $1,100 for each student. Your gift directly benefits every student at Mercy High School.Funds raised support academics, campus ministry, the arts and athletics – every program that touches the lives of our students. The Mercy Fund is the vehicle by with alumnae, parents, alumnae parents, grandparents, friends, faculty and staff, and the Board of Directors provide unrestricted financial support to help keep Mercy strong.
Give every year. Make an impact every day.

Why not just raise tuition rather than solicit gifts?
Although raising tuition would generate a certain level of revenue, we know it will not solve the on-going needs of the school. Most academic and philanthropic institutions rely on an annual giving model to sustain their programs. This affords an opportunity for all constituencies: alumnae, parents, parents of alumnae and friends to help support the mission of the school at a level they feel comfortable with. It also provides a tax deductible charitable gift opportunity for each donor. The Mercy Fund benefits 100% of Mercy students as all gifts support the operating budget. Every girl benefits when you make a gift.
How can I make my commitment and payments?
Your payments can be made in one lump sum, annually, or in monthly automatic withdrawals. Payments can be made with Visa, Mastercard, stock transfer, cash or online. Please return The Mercy Fund commitment form as soon as possible.
