Graduate Grams — A Mercer Island Tradition


For the past 30 years, family, friends, businesses, and community organizations have sent Grad Grams to Mercer Island students completing 5th, 8th and 12th grades to acknowledge their graduation.


All proceeds from the sales of Grad Grams go to the Mercer Island Community Scholarship Program, which recognizes outstanding MIHS graduating seniors. Scholarship recipients demonstrate perseverance, a passion for learning, a team player mentality, and are positive contributors to their classroom and community. 


You can support this program by purchasing Grad Grams or by donating directly to the MI Community Scholarship Program. Your contributions allow our community to provide 28 students with scholarship funds, up to $500 each, for future educational expenses. 



For 2024, Grad Grams tare available to purchase for students completing Preschool, Kindergarten, 5th, 8th and 12th grades. Each Grad Gram is printed on parchment paper, personalized with your congratulatory message, and mailed directly to the graduate’s home.


Grad Gram orders and donations to the MI Community Scholarship Program are tax deductible and eligible for corporate match. Questions? Email



Congratulations to all the graduates!


Your contributions make a difference!  Thank you for supporting our MI students.
