For more than 85 years, faculty, staff, students, alumni, parents and community friends have made College Misericordia, and now Misericordia University, a special place to learn, grow and develop.

Everyone associated with Misericordia University knows that something wonderful happens here. The founding charisms of the Sisters of Mercy -- mercy, service, justice, and hospitality -- continue to serve as the foundation for the educational opportunities we provide to our students.

Make a difference. Show your support today.

Annual Fund

Our alumni, many of whom have benefited from scholarship assistance themselves, understand the need to give back in order to continue to strengthen scholarship opportunities for today's students. Parents, friends, faculty and staff also recognize the importance of supporting the Annual Fund.

Gifts to the Annual Fund support every aspect of a Misericordia education -- from financial aid to instructional support, from student services to computer technology and from academic programming to maintaining the campus.

Giving Opportunities

Many gifts to the Misericordia University Annual Fund are unrestricted and allow you to have an immediate impact on the university's areas of greatest need. You may also donate to our general scholarship fund, a specific academic program, athletics, campus ministry, the Women with Children program and many other programs and services at Misericordia.

Special Giving Opportunity in Honor of Mike and Tina MacDowell -- This year provides a special opportunity to consider a tribute gift for Mike and Tina MacDowell in recognition of their retirement in June of 2013. In honor of Mike and Tina's 15 years of distinguished service, we ask you to consider a first-time or increased gift towards the goal of establishing the Dr. Michael and Tina MacDowell Endowed Scholarship.

Paver Program -- With a gift of $1,000, you may have your name or the name of a family member inscribed on a paver in the Pride of Champions Program, a visible brick paver display located at the entrance to the John and Mary Metz Field House. 

Locker Naming Program -- Traditional-size lockers in the Women's or Men's locker rooms are available for naming with a contribution of $500 or larger lockers, used for football and other sports, can be named with a donation of $800.

Circle of Pride -- With a gift of $1,000, you may have your name or the name of a family member inscribed on a paver in the Circle of Pride, located in the heart of campus.

The First Lady's Beautification Project -- This wonderful campus beautification project provides you with the opportunity to sponsor a bench or picnic table on the campus grounds for gifts ranging from $1,650 to $4,000.

Gifts may also be made "in honor of" or "in memory of" a friend, family member, professor, staff member, coach, mentor or colleague as a symbol of your gratitude. To view our Tribute Gifts information, click here.
