Thanks to you, Making A Difference 2018 was an incredible success!
Together, we raised a total of $350,000! 100% of funds will go towards tuition assistance for deserving young women. We had a record 375 people attend the Benefit Dinner! We would like to express our deepest thanks to the generous sponsors and donors.
Making A Difference provides urgently needed support for tuition assistance giving hopeful young women the opportunity for a Mercy education. The event has drawn attention and strong support to this campaign, which has raised more than $2.2 million—with nearly 1,200 donors and 4,500 gifts—since its inception in 2004.
This year, to recognize their combined 98 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.
We invite you to partner with us this year as a Making A Difference sponsor. To make your contribution online, please click here.

With the growing cost of Catholic education, more students than ever now need financial assistance to attend Mercy, and in recent years, low- and middle-income families have been particularly hard-hit by increased costs.
The Making A Difference dinner is underwritten by the Board of Directors; 100% of all sponsorships and donations directly assist girls in need of financial aid.
