Mercy College of Health Sciences’ Student Emergency Needs Fund helps support students who are facing unprecedented financial hardships. Due to COVID-19 causing unparalleled job losses around the country, the use of the Student Emergency Needs Fund has increased immensely as students grapple with paying for basic necessities.

To assist students who are struggling, a generous, anonymous donor organization will match gifts to the Student Emergency Needs Fund one-to-one for a limited time with a match up to $10,000.


Contributions to the Student Emergency Needs Fund provide tangible financial relief for Mercy College students in this time of great need.

UPDATE: The donor match has ended. However, the Student Emergency Needs fund is still in need and accepting gift donations. To give to the Mercy College of Health Sciences’ Student Emergency Needs Fund, click here and designate your gift to the Student Emergency Needs Fund.
