Student Fundraiser


Each year, Mercy sponsors a student fundraiser that helps support the school’s programs. This year we will host our first ever Dance-A-Thon (in place of The Bowl-a-thon) to celebrate the successful completion of the fundraiser! This is a great opportunity for our students to serve as ambassadors for Mercy and share how their experience here is meaningful, and why they value the support of their friends and family.

This year we are challenging the students to raise $70,000 to support and enrich the unique programs Mercy offers. As our annual student fundraiser, we really need 100% student participation.

Each student will be expected to raise a minimum of $75 to participate in the Dance-A-Thon and turn in their donations by Monday, January 14th, 2019. 

Mercy has partnered with eTeamSponsor, to administer and support the Dance-A-Thon fundraising efforts online! eTeamSponsor is a software platform that enables schools, foundations and non-profits to raise funds safely and effectively.

Dance-A-Thon information and instructions are available HERE. Students will kick-off this fundraiser on Friday, November 9th in advisory with information on their goals, dates, and incentives. Participant Instructions outlined in the instructional packet will be due Friday, November 16th during Advisory.
