Annual Fund Challenges


Finishing the Year Strong

The Annual Fund provides Mercersburg with the financial flexibility to address the areas of greatest need. It represents 10 percent of the school’s operating budget and has been a key component in normalizing the student experience this academic year amid many disruptions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

To help us finish the year strong, a group of generous donors has pledged $500,000 as an incentive for alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff to participate in the Annual Fund. All new gifts to the school prior to June 30 will be matched dollar-for-dollar. This is the perfect way for you to double the impact of your gift!
