Giving

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Nelson Mandela

These words were true in 1928, when the Sisters of Mercy provided a gift to our community and to generations of women and men by establishing Mount Mercy Junior college.  

And it is still true today.

The Sisters established Mount Mercy to unite people with opportunity through education. As we celebrate the 85th year of educating women and men with compassion and competence, we marvel at the changes that have occurred on campus and in our world, as well as the changes we have made in our students’ lives. 

For more than 85 years, alumni, parents and friends of Mount Mercy have given generously to continue the Sisters’ vision of blending faith and values with liberal arts learning and professional preparation. 

Please join the vision of the Sisters of Mercy by supporting our present-day efforts.  Your gift to Mount Mercy truly matters –  it transforms lives. Thank you for investing in Mount Mercy students. 

Here’s to the next 85 years!
