Mercy-A-Thon Student Fundraiser
This year marks Mercy High School's 28th annual student-led fundraiser!
Our goal is to collectively raise $100,000 which supports every student and program at Mercy including Academics, Student Life, Athletics, and Campus Ministry. The success of the Mercy-A-Thon is a community effort. Thank you for supporting Mercy High School and empowering the young women who will be the leaders of tomorrow.
The Mercy-A-Thon is a 5-week (August 24 - September 30) fundraising campaign, held primarily online, with a student celebration day on September 23rd at Pinstripes in San Mateo.
So how does it work? All students must register for the Mercy-A-Thon on the eTeamSponsor website between August 24 - 26, 2022 using their Mercy email. Once a student has registered, she has her own personal fundraising page. She can then begin to enter the emails of family, friends, even their orthodontist - anyone whom she would like to invite to support her to help reach her goal for the Mercy-A-Thon! All students are expected to participate in this student fundraiser.
We encourage students to enter up to 20 emails and, once entered, our program will send invitations to those whom they have entered to support the Mercy-A-Thon. She can also share this page via social media allowing family and friends to click on her fundraising page and directly make a donation to support her fundraising goal. Parents are welcome to share her fundraising page to their social media as well. This is a great opportunity for our students to become involved in philanthropy.
