The Mercy Fund presents a special opportunity for the Mercy community—parents and grandparents of alumnae, and friends around the world—to have an immediate impact on the young women we serve.  Make your gift today.

The Mercy Fund is the cornerstone of Mercy’s fundraising efforts, used exclusively to fill the gap between tuition and the total cost of education. Your gift provides students with centrifuges for the science lab, rallies on the green, robotics equipment, and inspirational teachers that dare girls to dream.

  • 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

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.
