Orange & Black Give Back: A Week of Giving is Mercer’s online-based fundraising event to increase awareness, support and donor participation for the University. The event will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, May 2, and end at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, May 6. For a whole week, we will enjoy Mercer memories, videos, games and more while increasing support and making a difference in the lives of our students. It’s all about participation. Help us increase support for much needed student scholarship and academic resources by making a gift to Mercer during Orange & Black Give Back. 

All week long, you can give to what you love most about Mercer so students have everything they need to thrive. 


Our goal is to have 1,000 people participate in Orange and Black Give Back. Why? Because your gift, no matter the size, matters.  

And for the first 1,000 donors who give, we have a generous donor who will add $50 to your gift. That's an extra $50,000 for Mercer students if we hit our goal! Turn your $10 into $60 or $500 into $550! 

Alumni giving is one factor used in evaluating colleges and universities, and your donation increases our participation rate and can lead to more grants from foundations and corporations as well as higher national rankings. Plus, it shows our students the community supporting them. 


The Mercer Fund has always filled the gap where tuition dollars stop. These unrestricted funds support the areas of greatest need on campus and serve every student, every day. Now, more than ever, these undesignated funds are crucial as we respond to the evolving needs of our students, faculty, and staff. 

With the Mercer Fund, you can give to what you love by:

  • Providing scholarships for exceptional students
  • Funding undergraduate research opportunities
  • Creating life-transforming service-learning opportunities
  • Strengthens student life
  • And much more!
