400 Fund

Assistance Today. Excellence Tomorrow.

Mercer Athletics sponsors 18 varsity sports and 400 student-athletes. Many of these athletes receive full or partial athletic scholarships. The 400 Fund is a newly established program to help defray the cost of athletic scholarships. Participation in this program provides the path to becoming a stakeholder in an individual athlete's Mercer experience.

How it works

 
Step 1

MAF will pair a donor family with a student-athlete who benefits from the funds raised through the 400 fund.

Step 2

The student-athlete's scholarship will be a named current use scholarship for the duration of the 3 year commitment.

Step 3

Each year, the Athletic Foundation will provide special opportunities to interact with the designated student-athletes.

Your commitment   Minimum gift of $5,000 / year for 3 years.
