The Making A Difference Scholarship Benefit was established in 2004 to raise additional funding for tuition assistance to ensure that qualified applicants who dream of a Mercy education are afforded that opportunity.

This year, to recognize their combined 97 years of dedicated service to Mercy education, we will present Mary Louise Castillo and Eileen Horan with the Catherine McAuley Award in recognition of their commitment to the vision of Catherine McAuley and the education of young women.

In 2004, the Board of Directors established the Making A Difference Scholarship Benefit to raise additional funding for tuition assistance to ensure that qualified applicants who dream of a Mercy education are afforded that opportunity.

Thank s to our generous supporters, who have donated over $2.1 million for financial aid since 2004, we are able to provide the exemplary Mercy Burlingame experience to talented, dynamic girls regardless of their financial situation.

Making A Difference transforms lives. Through your support and generosity, a young women’s life can be changed forever with a Mercy education.

The Making A Difference Benefit dinner is underwritten by the Board of Directors; 100% of all sponsorships and donations directly assist girls in need of financial aid.

Donations of all amounts deeply appreciated
