Support Mercy College Students on Giving Tuesday

Kathryn Bubrig

On Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020 we ask you to help support Mercy College students through a contribution to the Mercy College Student Emergency Fund.

Donations can be made at https://bit.ly/3f8MJBA
Select Apply my donation to: Student Emergency Fund.

If $2500 is donated on December 1, an anonymous donor will provide a $2500 matching gift, further supporting the Student Emergency Fund.

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. This year, Mercy College of Ohio is raising funds for the Student Emergency Fund, a fund that assists students with unforeseen financial emergencies which would prevent them from continuing their education at Mercy College. The fund is sustained by contributions from faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends of the College.

The Student Emergency Fund is available to degree-seeking and credit-bearing certificate students (online and land-based). The Fund Team considers each request and determines whether the student assistance funds can be used for the circumstance. Decisions are made as soon as possible depending on the urgency of the situation. The number of students who can be served by the Student Emergency Fund is determined by the availability of funds. A maximum of two (2) awards can be made to an individual student during their enrollment at Mercy College of Ohio. Typically, awards are limited to $200 so as not to exhaust the fund too quickly and given to students by making a payment directly to the need (e.g. utility company, landlord, etc.). If this is not possible, funds can be disbursed in the form of a gift card.

Those with questions about Giving Tuesday should contact the Mercy College of Ohio Alumni Department at 419-251-8993 or alumni@mercycollege.edu
