Stabler Scholarship grant awarded to Marywood

The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation recently awarded Marywood University a grant in the amount of $134,000 to support The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Scholarship Fund established in 2019 with a $385,000 gift from the Stabler Foundation. 

This Fund benefiting students from central and eastern Pennsylvania has been supported by subsequent foundation gifts in recent years, bringing the total giving to $1.1 million.

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. Marywood’s Stabler Scholars 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.

Sister Mary Persico, IHM, Ed.D., president of Marywood University said, “This generous gift will create resources that best serve our students during these times that require flexibility and ingenuity—two bedrocks of a Marywood education founded in the liberal arts tradition. Because of The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation, our resilient and innovative students will have the resources to emerge stronger and better. Their support indeed inspires the next generation of Marywood students to dedicate their lives to serve the common good.”
