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
