Thanks to you and your support of the Muhlenberg Fund, our students can fulfill their dreams, and you are helping make their future and society’s future even brighter. A gift to the Fund helps cover all of the College’s operational expenses, from financial aid awards, to athletic and laboratory equipment, to even paying for electric bills in classrooms and dormitories. In addition, every gift we receive by June 30, 2004, will be matched by a challenge gift from the Atlantic Philanthropies, which will make your gift even that much more significant in the lives of our students.
