Be Inspired. Make A Difference. Change a Life.
Making a Difference has been a catalyst for change, transforming the lives of over 1,800 Mercy girls. By providing essential funds, it has made a Mercy education accessible to those in need. Since its inception in 2004, Making a Difference has raised an impressive $4 million. As the need for tuition assistance continues to grow, our commitment remains unwavering—to turn the dreams of passionate and talented young women into a reality through a Mercy education. Together, we shape futures and empower generations to come.
