Annual Fund Donor Report Annual Fund Gifts Help Build a Better Tomorrow for GMercyU and Its Students The Annual Report reflects all donations received by the University during fiscal year 2018-2019 (July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019). Contributions received on or after July 1, 2019 will be acknowledged in the next donor report. The Annual Fund is one of Gwynedd Mercy University’s most important sources of support that can be applied to an area of essential need, including student scholarships, operational expenses, and academic programming. For today’s students, receiving private support is more critical than ever to achieving academic and career goals. Scholarships remain one of the most significant resources we offer our students. Last year, Gwynedd Mercy University awarded $21.9 million in scholarships, with approximately 99% of eligible students receiving some type of institutional aid. Your Annual Fund gift helps to meet that need and reinforces our commitment to provide students with an affordable, high-quality, Catholic education that upholds the Mercy mission of service to others. In addition to student scholarships, your Annual Fund contributions benefit the entire Gwynedd Mercy University community. Campus enhancements over the past year included the new Loop Road, pedestrain walkways, and landscaping throughout campus. Every gift, no matter the size, has the potential to make a difference in the lives of our students and positively impact the future of our University. Thank you for your continued generosity and support of Gwynedd Mercy University. For more information, please contact Director of Annual Giving Mia McGlynn at mcglynn.m@gmercyu.edu or 215-641-5568.
