Mercy-A-Thon Student Fundraiser
Students Supporting Students
This year marks Mercy High School's 27th annual student-led fundraiser!
For more than a quarter of a century, the student fundraiser, Mercy-A-Thon, has been one of the highlights of Mercy Week, led by Mercy Student Body Officers. Mercy-A-Thon 2021 is a 6-week (August 26 - September 30th) crowdfunding campaign, held primarily online, with a student celebration day on September 22nd at Pinstripes Bowling at Hillsdale Mall in San Mateo, CA.
The student fundraiser equitably supports every student and program, including Academics, Student Life programs, Athletics, and Campus Ministry, at Mercy High School for the current school year.
This year, our goal is to collectively raise $92,000. In order to reach this goal, the per student participation goal is $300. Some students will raise more than this and some students will raise less. Together, every dollar raised by all students benefits every girl - Students Supporting Students.
For the 6th straight year Mercy has partnered with eTeamSponsor to administer and support the Mercy-A-Thon fundraising efforts–online! eTeamSponsor is an innovative software platform that enables schools, foundations and nonprofits to raise funds safely and effectively.
Historically, the student fundraiser, Mercy-A-Thon has helped fund various projects including:
• Yearbooks (no costs to students)
• New water bottle filling stations on campus
• Freshman and Sophomore Retreats
• Renovation of the Cafeteria
• 3-D Printers and “Tinker Space” in the Library
• Technology upgrades
