You Make Mercy Possible
Your donations make a quality, college-prep education available to students who desire it. 82% of our students receive tuition assistance. Because of you, Mercy distributes $1.8 million annually in tuition assistance, a figure that eclipses support given by other private, college-prep schools in the area. But only a third of this support comes from our endowment. Your donations make up the $1 million shortfall that tuition doesn't cover. This is why you are so important.
Annual Fund support is the lifeblood for private schools. It’s a key component in how we provide $1.8 million in tuition assistance that 82% of our students receive every year. Our unique Negotiated Tuition Program considers the financial circumstances of each Mercy family to negotiate a tuition price that is fair and affordable. Your gifts to the Annual Fund are used immediately and ensure that the lifetime advantage of a Mercy education continues to be possible for all families.
