About

Mercer's Day of Giving 2018 an online-based fundraising event that begins on April 4, 2018. For 24 hours, students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends come together to grant opportunities and transform lives. It’s all about participation. Help us increase support for much needed student scholarship and academic resources by making a gift to The Mercer Fund during the Day of Giving. You can participate in online challenges that make your gift go even further. Every gift counts — no matter the size — and will make a difference in the lives of our students!

Thank you!

We started the 2018 Day of Giving with a goal of 700 donors in a 24-hour period. We are thrilled to announce that not only did we achieve that goal, we surpassed it by 73 gifts!  It is with the greatest of pride in the Mercer community, and with the utmost respect that we thank all alumni, parents, faculty, staff, friends and students for your generosity and support of #MUgiveback.
