What is The Malone Fund?
The Malone Fund is crucial to Malone University. Since tuition and fees never pay the entire cost of a college or university education, The Malone Fund makes up the difference between what students pay and the actual cost of the Malone Experience.
I'm a Malone graduate who is still paying for my education through student loans - why should I give more money to the University?
Alumni support does more than just help Malone students and faculty. When you give - even $5 or $10 - it indicates that alumni care enough about their experience at Malone to give something back. Alumni participation numbers go up, and so does our ranking in U.S. News & World Report's list of colleges and universities. Foundations, major corporations, prospective students, and others look to this report to determine the value alumni place on their university experience. As the University's ranking increases, so does the respect you receive from working so hard to graduate from Malone. In addition to adding value to your own degree, you are benefitting today's Malone University students.
So...what does my money do anyway?
Gifts to The Malone Fund help sustain essential Malone needs. Your gift helps pay for instructional supplies, library acquisitions, salaries, financial aid, laboratory equipment, web site development, and cutting-edge technology. All of these things play a huge role in helping Malone successfully compete for talented students, and empowering those students to compete for successful employment.
How can I contribute to The Malone Fund?
There are many convenient ways to give:
- Send a check payable to Malone University
