The Malone Fund

The Malone Fund is crucial to Malone University. Since tuition and fees do not cover 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my gift be matched?

A great way to double or even triple your gift to Malone is through your company’s matching gift program. Simply contact your company’s human resources department to get more information on how to take advantage of this valuable benefit, which allows you to help allocate your company’s charitable dollars to a cause you find meaningful.

I’m still paying for my education through student loans — why should I give more money to the University?

Alumni support does more than just help  students and faculty. When you give — even $5 or $10 — it indicates that alumni care enough about their experiences at Malone to give something back. As participation numbers go up, 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 Malone’s ranking increases, so does the respect you receive from working so hard to graduate.

Are there other ways I can give?

Special programs, projects, and contributions for bricks and mortar can be given in the form of substantial gifts of appreciated real estate, stocks, trusts, and bequest. Our Director of Planned Giving  can provide you with a personal and confidential gift illustration. Call 330-471-8235 to learn more.
