connection - The Muhlenberg Fund
The Muhlenberg Fund is what
keeps you connected and keeps you informed. You receive letters
from classmates and phone calls from current students. You see The
Muhlenberg Fund everywhere.
But what is The Muhlenberg Fund?
Simply stated, The Muhlenberg Fund is the College's annual giving
program. The Muhlenberg Fund provides 25 percent of the College's
operating budget. It supports day-to-day costs such as financial
aid, technology and faculty salaries, just to name a few.
In addition, because the cost to educate a student far surpasses
the cost of tuition and fees, the difference between the two is
generated through unrestricted gifts* to The Muhlenberg Fund. While
most Colleges increase their tuition 6 to 10 percent each year,
Muhlenberg maintains tuition increases of only 3 to 6 percent. Therefore,
current students and parents see the immediate effects of The Muhlenberg
Alumni are also directly impacted. As the strength and national
reputation of Muhlenberg increases, so does the value of the Muhlenberg
Gifts to The Muhlenberg Fund may be made several different ways:
cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, stocks, wills, bequests, gifts in
kind and online. For more information, please visit our Web site

Fund office at 1-800-859-2243.
A special thank you to everyone who has contributed to Muhlenberg
College. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
