About

During the month of December, Mercersburg Academy is calling you to be part of #OneMercersburg! We are challenging all members of the Mercersburg family to come together and reach a total of 1,000 Annual Fund donors by December 31. Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends are invited to participate and make their best gift in order to invest in the education of Mercersburg's students. Academics, athletics, performing and visual arts, scholarship aid, campus speakers, technology, and international studies are just some of the ways Mercersburg students will benefit from your support of the #OneMercersburg challenge.


Show your Mercersburg pride by using our social media tool kit.

Challenges

#OneMercersburg Parent Challenge

  • To help boost parent support of the school, a group of parents has teamed up to present a challenge exclusively for current parents. The #OneMercersburg parent challengers pledge to give $115 to Mercersburg for each current family that makes a 2017 Annual Fund gift in December. The goal is to secure 366 parent donors, as there is a total of $42,000 to earn. If you haven’t already made a gift this year, please participate today!  

Just for the Class of 1990

  • To inspire the class of 1990 an anonymous donor has pledged to give $19.90 for each classmate who makes a minimum gift of $19.90 to the Annual Fund. This challenge starts now and will run through the end of the 2016-2017 Annual Fund year (June 30, 2017).

Just for the Class of  2012

  • In honor of your 5th Reunion, Board of Regents member Steven Wagshal ’90 again challenges you to consider a multi-year Annual Fund pledge. For each member of the class of 2012 who makes a gift to the 2017 Annual Fund in addition to a pledge for the following four years, Mr. Wagshal ’90 will give $20.12 to the 2017 Annual Fund. To make your commitment, please contact Jason Bershatsky at bershatskyj@mercersburg.edu
