It inspires the entire Mercyhurst community, grows our endowment, and preserves the Mercyhurst tradition for future generations!

  • CONVENIENT. Your gift is tax deductible and at the end of each calendar year, you will receive a summary of your total annual gift
  • IMPORANT. Smaller installments, made more often, add up to a meaningful gift
  • SECURE. Your automatic payment information is safe and secure
