Many alumni are surprised to learn that tuition covers only 85 percent of a Muhlenberg education. This financial model, however, is not unusual. Tuition at Muhlenberg, as at most colleges, has never reflected the true cost of educating students. The Muhlenberg Fund, the College’s annual fund, is the vehicle we rely on each year to close the gap between what students pay and what it actually costs to educate them.
Put simply, The Muhlenberg Fund supports the core mission of the College, and a robust Muhlenberg Fund is a cornerstone of the College's fundraising efforts. A larger, sustained annual fund will provide a margin of excellence, allowing Muhlenberg to continue to provide students with a high-quality education today while we shape our tomorrow.
When Should I Make My Annual Gift?
The fiscal year for Muhlenberg College runs July 1 through June 30. All gifts in a given year must be received by June 30.
How Will My Gift Make a Difference?
Some people think that unless they can participate at a "major" gift level, it is not worth contributing to The Muhlenberg Fund. This is a common misperception. Regardless of size, all gifts to The Muhlenberg Fund make a difference. Each year, we rely on the ongoing support of all alumni, parents and friends at all giving levels.
How Will My Participation Make a Difference?
When Muhlenberg is considered for grants from corporations and foundations, one of the first questions asked is, "How many of your alumni give back?" These organizations are interested in parent and employee participation as well. Increasing our alumni, parent and employee participation rates will provide even more resources for our students and strengthen the College's capacity to respond to student and faculty needs rapidly and effectively.
