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. Tuition covers the basics of our Mercy education.  The generosity of our parents, alumnae, grandparents and friends enhance our excellent academic, athletic, fine arts, and student life programs, update our facilities and allow us to continue to attract outstanding faculty and staff. 

The Mercy Annual Fund is the cornerstone of philanthropy at Mercy providing critical support to the schools annual operating budget. A Mercy education costs about $3,000 more per student than tuition provides. We ask all families to make a tax-deductible commitment to the Mercy Annual Fund Parent Pledge Program.


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 a special event, hosted by the Head of School and Board of Directors. 

All families are asked to consider a gift of $2,000 or more.

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.
