From May 2 – May 6, five area all-girls Catholic high schools – Mercy McAuley,
Mount Notre Dame, Seton, Saint Ursula and Ursuline Academy – are teaming up for the 3rd
annual city-wide campaign called Girls’ Schools Unite. The fundraising campaign seeks to raise
awareness and financial support for all-girls Catholic education in Cincinnati. The campaign calls
on alumnae from each school to make a gift to their high school alma mater; all donations will
support the schools’ annual funds, which provide financial assistance, scholarships and campus
improvements for current and future students. The high school with the highest percentage of
alumnae participation will be “crowned” the winner on May 10, 2022.
The Girls Schools Unite campaign launched for the first in May of 2020, when together, the five schools raised $343,682 – even amidst the challenging time of pandemic. In 2021, the campaign raised $456,796 among the five schools. This year, the goal is to raise even more in support of all-girls Catholic education in Cincinnati.
Alumnae can make a gift online at the website of their alma mater anytime from May 2 -6, or they may mail a check dated between May 2 – 6 to their school.
Throughout the pandemic, Mercy McAuley, Mount Notre Dame, Seton, Saint Ursula
Academy, and Ursuline Academy remained focused on providing students with an outstanding
education. The Girls’ Schools Unite campaign is one way for alumnae to honor the students and
teachers who continued their commitment to innovative learning and teaching during this unprecedented time in our world, while also raising critical funds to support the schools’ missions.
