Your Gift Matters.
Creating A Future for Young Women.

When you give to Mercy, you create new opportunities and possibilities giving our students the chance to rise to their greatest potential, fulfill their dreams, and become all that God has called them to be. Your gift supports every aspect of life at Mercy. Your support makes Mercy a place where each girl can excel in a Catholic community where she is known, challenged and transformed. 

Please be assured of our deepest gratitude for every gift to Mercy High School.  Your generosity will impact generations.

How to make an Impact: 

Circle of Mercy: By giving $2,000 or more annually you will be a member of the Circle of Mercy and invited to an annual celebration with the Board of Directors and Head of School in December.

Reasons to Give to Mercy

  1. Mercy depends on philanthropic contributions to fund a portion of the operating budget.
    Mercy does not receive financial support from the Archdiocese nor federal or state funding. Like other independent schools, our ability to deliver the high-quality college-preparatory programs that we are known for depends upon your charitable support. 
  2. Great Teachers Change Lives
    80% of the annual operating budget supports teacher salaries and benefits; the Mercy Annual Fund supports these costs.
  3. Every gift matters.
    Annually most gifts to Mercy are under $500; together they make a difference. Every gift benefits each student, teacher and staff member and all of the programs at Mercy
