Endowment Gifts

An investment in the future.

Generous donors have been investing in Mercy’s endowment for generations.  Endowment funds provide a strong financial foundation for today and into the future.  Endowed funds provide long-term sustainability and vitality for students, faculty, and programs at Mercy High School.  

Building the school’s endowment is an investment in the future and ensures the school’s stable financial footing as it generates an annual stream of revenue to sustain scholarship, teaching, and capital needs. 

An endowed scholarship provides a personal and permanent way to make a difference in the life of a student and her family. An endowment fund can be created to support any specific program at the school or be directed to support Mercy’s scholarship program.

Contributions to our endowment can be made in one of the three ways below, and we welcome your partnership and investment.

  • You can make a gift to Mercy’s General Endowment Fund, a crucial source of support for Mercy.

  • You can establish a new, Named Endowment Fund at any time with a minimum pledge of $25,000+ or more and an upfront gift of a minimum of $5,000 along with signed agreements. For more information, please contact Mary Lund at 650.762.1191.

  • You can make a Planned Gift supporting the Endowment.
