Alumnae Giving

Photos of Alumnae

As an alumna, you understand, perhaps better than anyone, the value of a Mercy education. When you invest in The Mercy Fund, you have an indelible and immediate impact on the next generation of alumnae. Make your gift today.

Alumnae play an important role in helping Mercy continue its important mission. Years after graduation, many alumnae come to fully appreciate just how important a teacher or a class was in their personal development. Alumnae giving is one way to express that appreciation and to ensure that other students benefit from a Mercy education. Giving back shows that you valued your Mercy experience, and benefited from the investment in your potential!

WHAT WILL YOUR GIFT FUND?
The Mercy Fund gifts are directed where they are needed most, including:

  • Academics: Enhanced Academic programs and technology
  • Student Life: Supports campus ministry, leadership, athletics, visual and performing arts, service learning, clubs, and a wide range of student life opportunities
  • Faculty and Staff: Provides competitive salaries and professional development opportunities to our exceptional faculty and staff

If you have any questions about giving opportunities, please contact Carol Fraher, Assistant Director of Advancement. If you are looking for other ways to support Mercy, please contact Jamila Sinlao Zanette '04, Alumnae Relations Manager.

Ways to Give

Make Your Gift Online

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift benefits to their employees, doubling the value of their charitable contributions. These donations make a critical difference for Mercy.

Before you make your gift to Mercy, please click and check in the matching gift company search — or check with your company's human resources or benefits office—to see if your employer has a corporate matching gift program that will make your support go twice as far.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to Mercy High School may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
