The Malvern Federal Charitable Foundation was established in 2008 to support programs for housing assistance, local education, not-for-profit medical facilities, not-for-profit community groups, and other charitable causes that contribute to the quality of life in the local community. Since its founding, the foundation has awarded grants totaling $878,500 to dozens of nonprofits serving tens of thousands of individuals in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Florida.
“The inaugural Malvern Federal Charitable Foundation Charity Polo Match was designed to boost interest in, and giving to, the charitable organizations in Malvern Bank’s service areas,” said Anthony C. Weagley, President of the Malvern Federal Charitable Foundation and CEO of Malvern Bank. “The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted many nonprofits around the country, and Malvern Bank is committed to helping these organizations to fulfill their missions of helping, and providing vital services to, our neighbors – especially in these difficult times.”
