The Loyalty Society

The Loyalty Society recognizes the commitment of donors whose annual gifts serve as the cornerstone of Muhlenberg’s continued growth as a liberal arts institution for the 21st Century. Gifts to Muhlenberg in any amount for five or more consecutive fund years count toward The Loyalty Society membership and are greatly appreciated. Multiple intervals of loyalty are recognized – from members who are just starting a tradition of giving annually to members who have shown commitment to Muhlenberg through annual giving of 30 years or more. Membership is sustained as long as gifts are made to the College every fund year (July 1 to June 30) without exception.

The quality of the Muhlenberg experience is top notch because of the support of alumni, parents and friends. For this reason, the College asks all members of the Muhlenberg community to make a gift to The Muhlenberg Fund every year. A lifetime commitment to annual giving among our constituents, particularly alumni, is an important component in the College’s ability to achieve increasing prominence.


THE LOYALTY SOCIETY DONOR SPOTLIGHT: H. WARREN DIMMIG '42


H. Warren Dimmig ’42 has had an extensive history with Muhlenberg College, as shown by his many years of giving. In fact, he has been contributing to Muhlenberg for well over 30 years. Warren is a member of The Loyalty Society, which recognizes the commitment of donors like him whose annual gifts help the College continue to grow as a liberal arts institution.

 

Warren arrived at Muhlenberg in 1938 when the College consisted of only about 450 male students, roughly half of them commuters. He lived in East Hall, the only dormitory at the time available, for all four years. During his years here at Muhlenberg, he enjoyed spending time with his friends in the dormitory, attending Saturday morning football games and going into the city of Allentown on the weekends.

 

Warren graduated with a business administration degree in 1942, during the midst of World War II. Shortly after he graduated, he went into the U.S. Navy and became an air flight instructor, where he served our country for four years. He eventually settled in Lansdale, Pa. with his wife and four sons.

 

Warren remembers a Muhlenberg staff member visiting alumni many years ago to ask if they had any interest in supporting the College, and it inspired him to make his first gift. “Those were some of the best years of my life. My parents were responsible for bringing me to Muhlenberg, and they struggled to do it. I wanted to make it easier for others.” Ever since then, he has graciously continued to give to Muhlenberg.

 

The Muhlenberg community is so grateful for Warren's ongoing commitment, and established The Loyalty Society because of dedicated donors like him.
