Keep Them In Blazers
Malvern Preparatory School launches the Keep Them In Blazers campaign.
WHY: Malvern Prep is committed to providing a quality, student-centered, and Augustinian-based education for those qualified students who desire it. The Keep Them In Blazers campaign grew out of the need to support our Friar brothers during this uncertain economic time.
WHAT: This campaign will provide tuition support to students whose families are hardest hit by this economic downturn.
HOW: With a gift to the Keep Them In Blazers campaign, you not only give a young man the opportunity of a Malvern Prep education, you also give him a chance to pay it forward and make an impact of his own.
Your tax-deductible contribution to Malvern can be made online or via Venmo @MalvernPrep. Please feel free to contact the Office of Development, with any questions or concerns at 484-595-1110.
INSPIRATION: Our Keep Them In Blazers campaign is inspired by stories like those of twin brothers Nate '98 and Jason Lautar '98, who found themselves struggling to pay tuition. "My family was in a situation and needed help," says Nate. "an anonymous alumnus or family stepped up and made it possible for my brother and me to stay at Malvern Prep. I still, to this day, do not know who the donor is, but we are forever grateful."
The generosity of the anonymous donor was not forgotten by Nate and Jason. In the spirit of St. Augustine and the Malvern brotherhood, Nate and Jason have made their impact in different ways. Across the country, Jason is serving our country in the Navy, as second in command of the USS Michael Murphy, and is currently stationed in Honolulu. Close to home, Nate, with longtime friend and Malvern alumnus Todd Brennan '99 and others, started the Malvern Wrestling Club (MWC). The proceeds from the club are donated back to Malvern with the goal of providing the opportunity of a Malvern education to young men. Through their wrestling program, over $500,000 has been donated to Malvern, specifically to help students in similar situations as Nate and Jason.
Malvern helped me become the man I am today. It helped me to understand that life is about being a leader and loving God, family, and my friends more than myself. It taught me to be generous and caring of others and to always do the right thing. It taught me that relationships are important and family and friends are the most important things in life. All I can do is try and help the same way someone has helped myself and my twin brother. I hope that whoever gave to help me stay put at Malvern would be happy to see the way we are giving back now. I think it would bring them joy to know their gift is being paid forward.
