Mercy-A-Thon Student Fundraiser

This year marks Mercy High School's 29th annual student-led fundraiser! 

The Mercy-A-Thon is our student led fundraiser. All students have their own fundraising page and are asked to add at least 20 names to their profile. This platform gives students the ability to seek the support of family and friends anywhere in the world. The goal of the student fundraiser is two-fold; this fundraiser gives students valuable life skills that they can use throughout their career and personal life and it builds community among our school and helps support special projects. All students are expected to participate.

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 6-week (August 21 - September 30) fundraising campaign, held primarily online, with a student celebration day on September 20th 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 21 - 25, 2023 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 encouraged to share her fundraising page to their social media as well. This is a great opportunity for our students to become involved in philanthropy.
