Support DMU - Divine Mercy University

Upholding a true vision of the person, marriage and family is more important than ever, given the wounds and brokenness in the world today.  Divine Mercy University is unique in this regard.  We are the only one of its kind in the world.  We are proud to be a sign of hope in a society deeply affected by tragedies against the dignity of the human person.  Our students have the potential to become leaders in their field and they deserve every opportunity to excel and to reduce their concerns about the cost of higher education.

Your support will advance the institution, expand access through scholarships and invest in our students and in our future.  The mission of Divine Mercy University can continue to have the global impact desperately needed. Your contribution is an investment in the future therapy and counseling leaders of the world.

We want to ensure that financial limitations do not prevent high-caliber students from receiving this unique formation and training.  We do this by keeping tuition low and awarding competitive merit scholarships, through our robust scholarship program, inviting the generosity of partners like you to support this effort.

Your gift, no matter the size, supports our mission of bringing healing through means that uphold the goodness of the person. Help us to restore and nurture the Catholic-Christian view of the person within the field of psychology and counseling.  

Join with a decade of alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff who support our mission!  Read about the various opportunities we have for different levels of giving, make an online contribution or call us today to discuss alternative options.

SCHOLARSHIP GIVING

Divine Mercy University relies on the generosity of our donors to continue to develop our programs, increase our enrollment and assist in our support of society and the Church.  Scholarships attract the best qualified students to train in our healing mission.  Would you consider supporting a student with a contribution to one of the following?

INSTITUTIONAL GIVING

Here are some ways you can help DMU directly:

BEQUEATHALS

Bequeathals, both large and small, play an important part in securing the financial health of DMU for the future.  In addition to a will designation, there are other ways to make a charitable bequest. Please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement for more information.

  • Will or living trust
  • 401K plan
  • Matching funds from work
  • Traditional or Roth IRA
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Stock & Bond giving
  • Health Savings Account
  • Pay on death in bank or brokerage account

ANNUAL AND MONTHLY GIVING

A little goes a long way at Divine Mercy University. When you make a gift to the University, you join thousands of alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff who support the University each year. All of those gifts—most under $50—add up in a big way.

So even if you can part with only a few dollars, you can still do your part for a better Divine Mercy University.

MORE WAYS TO GIVE

Securities Giving

Thank you for considering a gift of securities in support of DMU. Gifts of securities may offer significant tax benefits to the donor. Please contact DMU and your tax professional for guidance. To Make a Gift of Securities please contact Fr. Ed Moran in the Institutional Advancement Office with complete donor information (name, address, phone number), the name and type of securities to be gifted (public, private, restricted, mutual fund, etc.), the number of shares, and the date you intend to make the gift.

Matching Gifts

One of the best ways to maximize your charitable contribution to DMU is through a special benefit many companies offer their employees: the matching gift program.

Through matching gift programs, many companies allow employees the opportunity to multiply the impact of their personal contributions. If your company sponsors a matching gift program, you can easily increase the impact your gift will have on students, faculty, and programs at DMU! Most participating companies will match employee gifts dollar for dollar. Some will even double- or triple-match a gift. Please check with your company’s human resources department to see if they sponsor a matching gift program.
