Financial Aid
Your gift provides immediate, necessary funding for student scholarships.

Supports Our Students
Gifts from alumni also support student-centered programs, such as co-curricular activities, technology updates, and other academic enhancements.

Adds Value to Your Degree
Alumni giving rates are not just a measure of alumni satisfaction. They account for a percentage of "best colleges" rankings methodologies, such as U.S. News & World Report rankings. These rankings:

  • Advance the national profile of Mercy College
  • Generate interest and inquiries from prospective students
  • Increase the quantity and quality of student applications
  • Display alumni pride and enthusiasm
  • Enhance the degrees of existing graduates

Mercy's excellence depends on the consistent generosity of our alumni, parents and friends. Giving societies are one way for us to say "thank you."

Direct your gift, at any amount, where it means the most to you, and know that you’re having a direct impact on the school, center, group or activity that helped shape your Mercy experience.

Your gift helps foster a culture of intellectual, physical and personal development by underwriting varsity and club teams, intramural programs, classes, and recreational activities.  Go Mavs!

Student Scholarships

A large percentage of our students rely on federal and state financial support, but those funds do not usually cover their entire tuition. Scholarship funds help bridge that gap.  Our scholarship program makes it possible for us to fulfill Mercy's mission to transform lives through higher education, and help our students achieve their dreams of earning a college degree.  Make your donation here.

A planned gift (through your will) helps ensure that students will benefit from the Mercy experience for years to come. Find more information here or contact the Office of Planned Giving at or 914-674-7782.
