Girls' Schools Unite Logo


Mercy McAuley is proud to participate in a unique city-wide campaign called Girls’ Schools Unite! From May 2 – 6, we will team up with Saint Ursula, Seton, Mount Notre Dame, and Ursuline Academy  to raise awareness and financial support for all-girls Catholic education right here in Cincinnati! This is our third year for Girls’ Schools Unite and we are excited to build on last year’s success when together we raised $456,796 for our students.


Due to the pandemic, the past two years were challenging for everyone – including our students. Despite these challenges, our young women continued to excel inside and outside of the classroom. We are grateful for the strength and perseverance of our students, faculty and staff, and for the return to more a more traditional high school experience for our young women.

Girls’ Schools Unite is not just about our school colors or our mascots or our individual histories. This is about the 2,898 students who wake up every day eager to expand their horizons and grow in grace and wisdom. This is about the future of a generation. 

But that future cannot happen without our entire alumnae community coming together as one to unite for a common goal—the education of all our young women. 

Join us in supporting all-girls Catholic education in Cincinnati by participating in the Girls’ Schools Unite alumnae giving challenge! Your gift to the Annual Fund will be used to provide financial assistance, scholarships and campus improvements for current and future students at Mercy McAuley.

Help us Win the Alumnae Giving Challenge!

The participating high school with the highest percentage of alumnae participation will be “crowned” the winner and will receive a trophy on May 10, 2022! We are coming together in this healthy competition among the five area all-girls schools to raise awareness and financial support for our students.

How can you participate? It’s easy! Simply make a gift to the annual fund at Mercy McAuley anytime between May 2-6. Gifts may be made online, via mail, or you may drop it off at Mercy McAuley any school day during the campaign period. You can also give via Venmo (@Mercy-McAuley); please indicate your school, graduation year, and maiden name (if applicable.)

Thank you in advance for your gift to Mercy McAuley, and thank you for your support of all-girls Catholic education! It is valued alumnae like you who make it possible for us to continue educating hundreds of young women each and every year.

Girls' Schools Unite: May 2 - 6.

Who will take home the trophy this year?
