Marywood Receives Grant to Stabler Endowed Scholarship Fund

Marywood University recently received a $200,000 grant to The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Endowed Scholarship Fund, which was established in 2020 with a gift from the Foundation in the amount of $385,000. The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation was established by Mr. and Mrs. Stabler in 1966 exclusively for charitable, religious, scientific, literary, or educational purposes. Students who receive a Stabler Scholarship commit to making contributions to the endowment scholarship fund after their graduation in an amount at least equal to what they received. This is a “debt of conscience” rather than a legal obligation, and it helps to create a culture of philanthropy in students who have received funding and support
