Erie Gives 2013 was a huge success for Mercyhurst University and many other local non-profits. The day brought in $1,720,842 from 4,869 donors–Mercyhurst University receiving some of those funds!
From 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., members of the Mercyhurst community donated over $5,000 to the Mercyhurst Annual Fund! A portion of these funds will then be matched by the Erie Community Foundation. The support from our alumni, parents and friends was overwhelming; almost doubling the amount of donors we had from last year!
The money donated to the Annual Fund will directly support operational expenses for academic support, research opportunities, scholarships, athletics and much more campus wide!

Thank you for another successful year of Erie Gives – we truly appreciate your generosity toward Mercyhurst University.
