Gathering in support of Mercy’s mission


Each year, Mercy hosts multiple fundraising and ‘friend-raising’ events in support of our students and mission. Over the decades, tens of thousands of alumnae, parents, donors, and friends have enjoyed galas, parties, get-togethers, dances, cocktail hours, golf tournaments, reunions, traditions such as Golden Mass, and so many others. The Circle of Mercy may extend far and wide, but Mercy Girls are never far apart.


Through the generosity of sponsors, golfers, and friends, the Annual Father Ed Zimmer Memorial Mercy Golf Tournament has raised more than $600,000 over the last 23 years! When you partner and/or play with us in this event, you support the long-lasting impact of a quality world-class education for future generations. We hope you consider joining us!

Mercy’s signature fundraising event, the Spirit Gala, is a much-anticipated annual event attended by hundreds of alumnae, donors, friends, and faculty. Over the years, the Gala has raised millions of dollars in support of the school’s academic program thank to our generous sponsors and attendees. Formal but fun, the Gala is an evening when we gather to celebrate the very best of Mercy.
