“Collectively, these organizations provide vital services each year to thousands of people in southeastern Pennsylvania, northern New Jersey, and Palm Beach County, Fla.,” said Anthony C. Weagley, President of the Malvern Federal Charitable Foundation. “Our grants are intended to assist these organizations in fulfilling their missions of helping our neighbors. Since its founding in 2008, the Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $800,000 to organizations that improve the quality of life in our growing service area.

“This, coupled with the charitable giving provided by Malvern Bank, which is in excess of $550,000 since my arrival in 2014, makes an impact to the communities we serve. We focus on education and will continue to support schools at the bank level this coming year – such as The Woodlynde School, the Timothy School, and Freedoms Foundation – who have been past grant recipients.”
