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.
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.
