Your campus 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 Fund.
Alumni are also directly impacted. As the strength and national reputation of Muhlenberg increases, so does the value of the Muhlenberg College degree.
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 at www.muhlenberg.edu/alumni/devel/index.html or call The Muhlenberg Fund office at 1-800-859-2243.
A special thank you to everyone who has contributed to Muhlenberg College. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

* Unrestricted gifts are gifts that can be allocated
to the highest need of the College.
