MMAnnual Fund 

The MMAnnual Fund is the most important gift that you can make to Merion Mercy Academy.  

It’s a vital source of support for us, providing essential funding that touches every aspect of our school and impacts the day-to-day learning opportunities.

A healthy Annual Fund shapes the Merion Mercy experience, allowing our students to have greater opportunities both inside and outside the classroom and giving our teachers the necessary tools to create better learning environments for our students.

It is only because of the generosity of alumnae, parents, and friends that Merion Mercy Academy is able continue our mission of educating young women.

Tax Credit Programs

Would you like to control how your Pennsylvania tax dollars are spent? Through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) program, individuals and businesses can pay their PA state taxes directly to Merion Mercy to be used for financial aid.

Individuals and businesses in Pennsylvania will receive up to a 90% tax credit by donating to MMA through the EITC and the OSTC programs. By directing tax dollars you or your business will already be paying, you are helping Merion Mercy provide financial aid to qualifying students.

Individuals should contact the Advancement Office at advancement@merion-mercy.com to learn of opportunities as they arise over the year.
