Mercyhurst University, a nonprofit organization, sometimes enters into affinity agreements with for-profit companies that seek to provide products or services to Mercyhurst alumni.
Under these agreements, the college assists companies in marketing products or services to Mercyhurst alumni. In return, the Mercyhurst University Alumni Association may receive licensing fees, royalties and/or in-kin contributions that help support the programs and activities of the Alumni Association.
These arrangements — including, but not limited to, credit card and insurance programs — are an important dimension of many alumni association programs nationally. Mercyhurst University follows national best practices when selecting its affinity partners.
Alumni may, at any time, opt out of receiving communications pertaining to affinity programs by contacting alumni relations.
