Giving to Merrimack

Giving Societies


All gifts to Merrimack College have a powerful impact on a full range of activities.

From creating more student learning spaces on campus to making critical academic hires that will enable Merrimack’s reputation to soar, your gift will touch areas related to teaching, research and student life in fundamental ways. 

Support from Merrimack’s global community has already provided student scholarships, increased financial support for faculty, built state-of-the-art athletics and academic facilities…and turned on the lights 365 days a year since 1947. Every gift matters. Especially YOUR gift.
