Annual Fund

Your Annual Fund gift ignites opportunities for every student.

Mercersburg is the pivotal moment in a young person’s life, and the Mercersburg Annual Fund ensures that the school can deliver an extraordinary education every year thanks to gifts from alumni, parents, and friends.

The Annual Fund provides 10 percent of the school’s operating budget not covered by endowment income or tuition. Your participation affirms Mercersburg’s mission and its culture of excellence, and your gift is part of a collective investment in every student.

You decide where to have an impact.

As you consider your support of Mercersburg Academy, you can declare your preference in how your gift will be used.
