Annual Fund



“Invest in me!” Our students need your support through a gift to the 2021-2022 Annual Fund.  Show them that you believe in their ability to reach their goals by giving a gift that is an investment in their future.  The gift of a Mercy education is not one that everyone can afford. Give a gift that has a life-long impact!


While a Catholic education is a priority for many families, we know it is not always feasible -- especially after the financial hardships many people faced this past year, both nationwide and right here in the Buffalo area. 


This year our goal is to raise $175,100, which will directly impact our ability to serve our current student body and future students. 


With a donation to Mount Mercy Academy, you are helping provide a young woman in our community a faith-based education and the resources to reach her full potential. 


“ By providing funding for our school, you help support innovative ways of learning which keep us competitive with other schools by having the most up-to-date resources and technology for our future,” said Grace Spero, class of 2022. 


Alumnae, friends, family and community members, please join us in honoring the mission of Catherine McAuley and invest in the young women of Mount Mercy Academy.  Thank you to those who have already given. Please share with your friends, family and colleagues what this investment means to you. It is through your encouragement and support that we will reach our goal together.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
