Moravian College receives $385,000 grant from the Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation 

The grant will support endowed scholarships for Moravian College students

Bethlehem, PA, January 23, 2020: Today, Moravian College announced that it has received a grant for $385,000 from the Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation for an endowed scholarship fund that will assist Moravian students for generations to come.  The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Scholarship Fund will support students from central and eastern Pennsylvania who demonstrate financial need and academic promise.

“Moravian is honored to be the latest recipient of funding and support from the Stabler Foundation,” said Bryon Grigsby, president of Moravian College. “With this grant, deserving students who could not otherwise afford college will have the opportunity to attend Moravian College, further their education, and give back to the community.”

Students who receive a Stabler Scholarship will commit to making contributions to the endowment scholarship fund after their graduation in an amount at least equal to what they received; this is a “debt of conscience” rather than a legal obligation, and helps to create a culture of philanthropy in students who have received funding and support.
