Girls' Schools Unite Logo

Mercy McAuley is proud to participate in a unique city-wide campaign called Girls’ Schools Unite! From May 3 – 7, we will team up with Mount Notre Dame, Seton, Saint Ursula and Ursuline to raise awareness and financial support for all-girls Catholic education right here in Cincinnati! This is our second year for Girls’ Schools Unite and we are excited to build on last year’s success when together we raised $343,682 for our students.

The past year has been challenging for everyone – including our students.  Last spring, the pandemic took away their in-person classroom instruction, their spring sports seasons, and many beloved traditions such as prom, award ceremonies and special events. But through it all, our students persevered and returned to in-person instruction this past fall, wearing masks and social distancing. Today, they are excited about the light at the end of the tunnel and the return to a more traditional high school experience!

Girls’ Schools Unite is not just about our school colors or our mascots or our individual histories. This is about the 2,991 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 (your school name).

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 11, 2021! 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 anytime between May 3 - 7. Gifts may be made online, via mail, Venmo (@Mercy-McAuley) or you may drop it off on any school day during the campaign period.

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.
