Misericordia Fund


Opportunity, they say, knocks softly. Opportunity also doesn’t often wait around for those slow to respond. So don’t wait. Help strengthen our Misericordia Fund now so that we can address immediate concerns when time just won’t wait.

This vital resource enables Misericordia to take advantage of fast-moving situations: to cost-effectively get a needed piece of equipment, for example, or join a unique research effort or test a promising new program on campus. Misericordia Fund support also helps propel general scholarship efforts and vital day-to-day operations of the university.

Through this campaign, with your help, we will bolster the funds that enable Misericordia to move quickly on outstanding opportunities to better the university and help shape success for our graduates.


Each year at Misericordia, we are thankful for the generosity of our donors who contribute to the Misericordia Fund. These gifts provide critical support where it is most needed in any given fiscal year. Through this campaign, we seek to increase unrestricted contributions that support such opportunities as:

  • Student scholarships
  • Autism Center/Autism for Lifelong Learning Program
  • NMR Spectrometer and Fluorescent Microscope
  • Free Speech Services for Underserved Children
  • Direct Digital Radiology Equipment
  • Student/faculty research
  • Spring break service trips
  • Visits from world-class scholars and performers

 “Having access to top-of-the-line equipment helps attract more up-and-coming students in the science fields. My work in the scientific industry has been greatly enhanced by the equipment I used in my senior-year research projects with Dr. Nicola Edwards—equipment purchased because of gifts made to the University’s Misericordia Fund.”
