Annual Fund



Honor the women in your life with a donation to Mount Mercy Academy for Mother's Day!


With a donation greater than $25, you will receive a letter and certificate from Mount Mercy Academy dedicated to the person of your choice.


We encourage you to post on Facebook or Instagram about the donation in honor of your loved one and tag our school’s social media accounts. Sharing your personal stories of how a Mercy education has impacted the women in your life will help us better honor the mothers and daughters in our Circle of Mercy. It will also allow us to further educate people about our school and our mission.

Every day, we are thankful for all moms and mother figures who love, nurture and protect selflessly. Mount Mercy Academy’s Mother’s Day campaign will last throughout the month of May.


Use the hashtag #MercyMothersDay to accompany your posts!

Message from Katie Miller Denning '96:


"My mother, Mary Ann Griffin Miller ‘68 started our family legacy at Mount Mercy Academy in 1964.  My two sisters (Ann Miller Fredo ‘89 and Jeanne Miller Scanlon ‘92) and I followed in my mother’s footsteps, all attending and graduating from MMA.  Having loved our experiences at MMA, we guided my three nieces (Madeline Fredo’16, Emma Fredo’18 and Hannah Fredo ‘21) to attend, closely followed by my own two daughters, one who is currently a junior and the other will start her Mercy journey in the fall of 2022.  We are very proud of our family legacy at MMA and are thankful for the education, faith and friendships our Mercy experience gave us."




“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.

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
