Fundraising is an essential component of Mercy’s operation. Each family having a student at Mercy is obligated to raise $950 through Parent Alliance-sponsored fundraisers during each school year. Parents who meet their fundraising obligation may continue to raise funds that will further their child’s educational experiences at Mercy. The Parent Alliance contributes money directly to classroom activities and experiences for our children as well as promoting community awareness for Mercy.

Annual Events

Spring Social

The Spring Social is one of the Parent Alliance’s largest fundraisers of the year. This event features a buffet dinner, raffle baskets for attendees to win, dancing and more. The Spring 2019 date will be posted when details have been confirmed.

We did have a successful April 2018 event. It was a wonderful night with many Mercy family members and friends attending.

Doors open at 5, with dinner starting at 6 and attendees must be 21 years or older.
