Mercy-A-Thon Student Fundraiser
Students Supporting Students
This year marks Mercy High School's 27th annual student-led fundraiser!
Each year Mercy has one annual student-led fundraiser, our "Mercy-A-Thon." It is the opportunity for each girl to become involved in an exciting and fun crowdfunding campaign. Depending upon where each girl went to school before Mercy, parents may have been expected to be involved in many student fundraisers such as selling candy, wrapping paper, gifts bags etc. At Mercy, we have only one student fundraiser, and this is it! Through this fundraiser, Mercy girls learn entrepreneurship and develop a culture of philanthropy.
The Mercy-A-Thon is a 6-week (August 26 - September 30) crowdfunding campaign, help primarily online, with a student celebration day on September 22nd at a surprise location.
This year, our goal is to collectively raise $92,000 which supports every student and program at Mercy including Academics, Student Life, Athletics, and Campus Ministry.
So how does it work? All students must register for the Mercy-A-Thon on the eTeamSponsor website between Aug. 10th - Aug. 26th using their Mercy email. They then can enter as many emails of family, friends, even their orthodontist - anyone who they would like to invite to support them to help them reach their goal for the Mercy-A-Thon! Gifts can be in any amount from $5 to $50 or $5,000! Whatever anyone wants to give! The girls will have their own fundraising page and can track their own progress. They can add more emails at any time of anyone who lives anywhere in the world! It’s easy and fun! \
