Donations & Payments
Thank you for all you do for Our Lady of Mercy!
Our Lady of Mercy provides a solid foundation of learning, achieving, leading and serving: we prepare our students for life. Tuition and fees cover just over 60% of our annual budget. Though we get support from OLM parish and the other parishes where our students attend, these subsidies and other fees cover just another 20%. We need to raise nearly 20% every year to cover the gap. We need support from donors like you to enable us to carry out our mission for our students.
We have several ways you can help support our most important needs:
- Tuition Assistance: Approximately 30% of our families receive financial aid of some kind to help them afford a Catholic education for their children. If you value Catholic education and would like to help, consider donating to our tuition assistance funds in any amount or check out our Support A Scholar program.
- Because of the annual need for tuition assistance, we would like to build up our Endowment fund so that it will start generating proceeds for us to use.
- As more and more textbooks are starting to transition to electronic formats, it is important that we stay ahead of the movement and keep our technology current for our students.
- If you have a business, you can also participate in our Corporate Sponsorship Program. Your donation goes to our general operating budget to help fill the gap.
We would be happy to contact you to discuss giving options--we appreciate all types of support. You can call or e-mail Robin Ervin, Director of Advancement, for more information at 336-722-7204.
