Being a tuition-driven, private school, Mercymount solicits our community for financial support. We schedule four major fundraisers each year: The Fall Fundraiser (fomerly Magazine Sale), The Bids for Kids Auction, The Pot-of-Gold Tournament, and The Golf Tournament. These are long-standing events organized by dedicated volunteer committees with a combination of exceptional parental support, corporate donations and unparalleled volunteer leadership.
The Annual Fund, initiated in 2001-2002, raises money to supplement the tuition and is used for general operating expenses, unless otherwise designated by the donor. The school embarked on its first Capital Campaign, Building on Excellence, in January 2004. The campaign committee raised $1.28 million dollars to offset a $5 million dollar addition and renovation for the McAuley Wing. Our second capital campaign, Building on Top of Excellence, was conducted from July 2010-2012. The campaign raised $500,000 to benefit Foundress Hall. The school maintains an Endowment to benefit scholarship. The Gertrude Riley Endowment Fund was started in 1994 in memory of former Pawtucket Principal Gertrude Riley, the aunt of current Principal, Sr. Martha Mulligan. This fund is utilized for financial aid. Gifts to this fund are always appreciated.

Mercymount could not exist in our present state without the extraordinary gifts we receive in the form of time, talent and treasures. The appreciation of our entire community … students, faculty, parents and alumni … is boundless. Our success begins with our parents, from 1948 to present day, and the precedents they set from year to year.
