Meet MEP's New Director of Development & Marketing

Susan Bresler, Director of Development & Marketing

Susan came to MEP in late March 2016 with over 17 years of experience in nonprofit fund development and community outreach through her work with a large health system foundation as well as small and medium sized nonprofits. Prior to working in development, Susan had an accomplished career as a clinical social worker. Susan brings her joy of building relationships to her genuine passion for MEP's mission of improving the quality of lives of women and girls through education. She admired and supported the important work of Mercy Education Project since meeting Sr. Maureen Mulcrone, at a networking event for nonprofits in 2009. Susan is absolutely thrilled to now be a member of Mercy Education Project’s staff, working each and every day to help nurture and support the educational dreams of our students. Please feel free to call or email to introduce yourself -- Susan is interested in getting to know all of Mercy Ed’s volunteers and supporters. [email protected]  or 313-963-5881

"Education is an opportunity and can be transformational for our most vulnerable communities; especially those, like us, working tirelessly in search of the American Dream. Programs like Mercy Education Project have successfully removed those barriers for many and have educated our women and girls and is transforming their lives."

"….Literacy is a fundamental right and an essential building block for a productive life. Increasing adult literacy also ensures more parents can be engaged in their children’s education, ,making this a cause  critical to helping families break the cycle of poverty. Thank you to Mercy Education Project for their tireless efforts to ensure everyone has an opportunity to learn to read. Together, I know we are making a difference.”
