Annual Gifts

At Mount Mercy, we are committed to lifelong learning and education of the whole person in the distinctive tradition and spirit of the Sisters of Mercy.

Annual gifts provide hundreds of scholarships to students who may not have the capability to afford a Mount Mercy education. They also fund student service trips, enhance campus safety, maintain facilities and ensure continued institutional growth and vitality.

The Mount Mercy Fund also has helped expand academic, athletic and fine arts programs at the University.

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.

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.

"I can feel in my heart the generosity and legacy of those who have come before me.

I look forward to supporting Mount Mercy for future generations. That’s why I have made my first gift to the University. It is a small gift of gratitude for the many gifts Mount Mercy has given me.”
