Annual Fund

The Mercersburg Annual Fund is an opportunity for alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends to play a critical role in supporting the school's mission to prepare young men and women for college and for life in a global community.

Representing nearly 10 percent of the school's operating budget, the Annual Fund underwrites all the things that make Mercersburg extraordinary: an innovative curriculum, inspiring performing and visual arts, more than two dozen sports, scholarship aid, international field study, campus speakers, new technology, and all the other components of a student's experience.

Because tuition and endowment income alone don't meet the full cost of a Mercersburg education, your gift ensures that the school has what it needs to thrive. Annual Fund gifts are spent on immediate needs in the fiscal year in which they are given (July 1 to June 30). Meeting the Annual Fund goal each year is the school's most important ongoing fundraising priority.

In a very tangible sense, your contribution to the Annual Fund provides an exceptional 21st-century education for each Mercersburg student. Every gift of every size has an impact, and the collective generosity of alumni and friends is what makes the Mercersburg experience possible.
