PNC Foundation contributes $75,000 to Moravian
College Priorities Campaign

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) - The Moravian College Priorities for the Future Campaign has received a $75,000 gift from The PNC Foundation to support the construction of Moravian's new academic building. Pete Danchak, president, PNC Bank, Northeast Pennsylvania, and Mike Dennen, vice president of corporate banking, PNC Bank, visited the College recently to present the check to Moravian's president, Dr. Ervin J. Rokke.

"We are pleased and grateful for PNC's generosity to Moravian," says Dr. Rokke. "It is always exciting when two great institutions work together to do great things, and our new academic building increase our ability to meet the specific demands of modern pedagogy."

In presenting the gift, PNC's Danchak said, "PNC has long been committed to serving the communities where we work. It's a pleasure to be associated with a College like Moravian that has such a fine tradition of providing outstanding liberal arts education for young people."

The new academic building features modern classroom, research, and laboratory space and will serve as the academic hub of the College's Main Street campus. Located directly across the street from the Haupert Union Building, the facility will provide much-needed new classroom space and provide a new home for Moravian's Education, Psychology, Sociology, and Mathematics and Computer Science departments.
