Annual Gifts

The Mount Mercy Fund

Gifts to the Mount Mercy Fund provide vital, unrestricted dollars that supplement the University's operating budget and support every student by bridging the gap between tuition — which covers only 70 percent of the actual costs to provide a quality, Mercy education to our students.

Annual gifts provide hundreds of scholarships to students who may not otherwise be able to afford a Mount Mercy education. They also fund student service trips, enhance campus safety, maintain facilities and ensure continued institutional growth and vitality. With your gift, you help change the world for Mount Mercy students.

 
Each year Mount Mercy welcomes a new class of students, so the University's future is always just beginning. That is why we ask for your annual contributions to the Mount Mercy Fund this year and every year. Our students thank you!

“From a young age, I knew that I was meant to be a nurse. With the support of Mount Mercy University’s wonderful donors, I will be the first person in my family to attain a bachelor’s degree. I thank you along with the rest of our wonderful and generous donors for giving myself, and Mustangs alike, this opportunity to pursue our dreams.”
