Monthly Giving

Giving to Mercy Learning Center monthly is a great way to support women’s education.  As a sustaining donor, you’ll be helping to ensure the sustainability of the Center while saving yourself time. Just set it and forget it!

To set up monthly giving to MLC, go to our donate page and check the box next to “Show my support by making this a recurring donation.”


Planned Giving

With planned giving, you are establishing a donation that will be given at a later time. By planning to support MLC in the future, you help ensure that we continue to educate and empower women and families. Planned giving can also provide financial benefits to you and your family now and in in the future.

If you are interested in planned giving, speak with your legal and/or financial advisor to discuss the many options, including:

  • Bequests, estate gifts or trusts
  • Stocks and securities
  • Life insurance policies or real estate
  • Annuities


Endowment Giving

When you give to Mercy Learning Center’s endowment fund, your gift will be an important part of MLC’s long-term ability to deliver quality education and life skills programming to undereducated, low-income women in the Bridgeport area well into the future. Call us at 203-334-6699 to learn more about endowment giving.


In-Kind Gifts

Your gifts of food, diapers, and other daily necessities support the women at Mercy Learning Center so that they can stay in school. Review our Wish List to see what items we currently need most and consider donating or coordinating a collection drive.  Contact Nora Jinishian at 203-334-6699 or nora.jinishian@mercylearningcenter.org to learn more about in-kind donations.


Scholarship Support

College is a tremendous opportunity for the women who graduate from MLC, but it can also be a significant financial hardship. MLC provides scholarship funding to qualified graduates to ensure that they can continue on their educational path. You can help a woman achieve her dream of attending college by donating to our Women of Achievement Scholarship Fund. Call us at 203-334-6699 to learn more.
