Every gift counts and helps Mercy College students and our community become stronger.
A Message from Bernadette Wade
Friends of Mercy College,
Mercy College is committed to providing students the opportunity to transform their lives through higher education. This mission drives each one of us every day.
In my role as the Chief Advancement Officer, this means working with my dedicated development team to raise the needed funds to ensure that students not only have the opportunity to study at Mercy, but that they persist to graduation and ultimately achieve career success in their respective fields.
The development team also works tirelessly to preserve the history of this great institution and share the achievements of our alumni, donors, friends and community partners, and the impact they have on the communities we serve. Through this work, we strive to connect our community through lectures and events that showcase our Mercy family and also elevate the awareness and reputation of Mercy College as a leader in the world of higher education.
I invite you to explore the many ways to support Mercy College. Through scholarships, planned giving, reunions and naming opportunities, we are able to work with you to determine the best giving options that align with your interests.
We are grateful to all of our generous benefactors and supporters who dedicate both their time and talents to help us change the lives of our students. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about ways to support Mercy College.
Chief Advancement Officer
