Did you know that one of Pennsylvania’s
most generous citizens last year was Benjamin Franklin?

Mr. Franklin provided support for science museums, fire departments, libraries, symphonies, health centers, college students, and much more. How did he do it?

He created an endowment.

Benjamin Franklin died in 1790, but in his will he directed that a small portion of his estate be used to create endowed funds that would be used for good works according to his specific instructions. Mr. Franklin’s funds are worth millions today, but they didn’t start out that way. They didn’t need to.

You can do the same thing at Moravian College. In fact, there are nearly one hundred endowed scholarship funds available to our students. These funds were established with gifts from alumni and friends and invested in the Moravian Endowment. The long-term growth of the College endowment has enabled us to support many more students than most donors ever imagined possible.

If you would like more information about creating an endowed fund at Moravian through your will or through a direct contribution, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 800 429-9437. Thank you.

We called. You answered.

Our student callers (pictured here) have contacted nearly 7,000 alumni, parents and friends of Moravian during our Fall Phonathon.

The response has been overwhelming. Your phonathon gifts and pledges have topped $224,000 to date!

Your generosity truly makes a difference in the life of the College and in the lives of our students

Thank you!
