Scholarshare Volunteers

Scholarshare donors make the dreams of a Mount Mercy education a reality.

Scholarshare is our peer-to-peer business solicitation program designed to not only raise scholarship dollars for deserving students, but also to share information with community leaders about Mount Mercy’s community impact and mission. An investment in Mount Mercy University supports the future growth and prosperity of the Eastern Iowa Corridor. 

Shive-Hattery, Inc. has issued a $5,000 challenge match for our 2012-2013 campaign! They will match new donations up to $5,000 and we thank them for their generous support!  

Our Goal for the campaign this year is $90,000.00 in scholarships.  I will keep you updated weekly throughout the campaign so we can celebrate our progress together.

Many thanks for agreeing to help us provide the means for so many deserving students to receive a Mercy education. Thanks in advance for helping us transform lives!
