Half Million Dollar Donation To Our Lady Of Mercy School Announced

Anonymous donation will support school's continued development, school officials say.


This information was submitted by Our Lady of Mercy School: 

Monsignor John P. Conte, Father James A. Shanley and Principal Sister Carol Sansone, ASCJ are pleased to announce that an anonymous benefactor has given Our Lady of Mercy School (OLM) School in Madison a $500,000 donation to support the school’s continued development. 

OLM School, which educates children in Pre-K  through 8th grade, is the parish school of Saint George Church in Guilford and Saint Margaret Church in Madison.

The generous gift will enable the school to continue its mission of providing a high quality Catholic education on the shoreline through endowment and scholarships, and other initiatives well into the future.

“The donor’s gift will help to ensure that OLM students are given a great start in life and grow up to be productive and faith-filled citizens,” said Msgr. Conte. 

The donation comes at a time when OLM is in the process of completing an extensive upgrade of their technology and classroom environment to achieve a state of the art and innovative educational experience. 

“The OLM school community is extremely excited and appreciative of the generous gift that will make such a positive impact on the school and further advance our already excellent academic offerings,” said Sr. Sansone.
