Parent Giving | The Mercy Annual Fund 2022-23

As with all private Catholic schools, Mercy is dependent on two primary sources of revenue to operate the school: tuition and fundraising.  The Mercy Annual Fund is the cornerstone of philanthropy at Mercy providing critical support for 13% of the overall cost to operate the school.  A Mercy education costs about $3,400 more per student than tuition provides. 

We are seeking 100% participation from all of our families!  Gifts of all amounts help us reach this important goal!  


The Head of School's Circle is composed of lead benefactors to Mercy High School. Membership is open to all individuals, families, alumnae, foundations and corporations who make a gift of $2,000 or more annually. Members of the Head of School's Circle will be invited to the Circle of Mercy donor event in December, hosted by the Head of School and Board of Directors. 

All families are asked to consider a gift of $2,000 or more.  We know not all families can do this.  Some can do more and for some, a gift of $25 may be a great sacrifice. Thank you for participating at the level that is meaningful for your family.

Complete the online form below, submit the Commitment Form to pledge now and pay later or download the Commitment Form below to send in with your pledge/payment. Payments can be made in one lump sum or spread out throughout the year.  

Parents are encouraged to make their gift by December 31st.  However, gifts/pledges may be fulfilled through June 30th of each year.  

Gifts may be made through a one time gift or a pledge payable in multiple payments. Gifts may be paid with check, online, stock or Donor Designated Funds. Learn more.
