A Community Center

In 1856, a number of citizens organized the Macungie Institute for the purpose of educating students in this building.  Today our goal is much the same.  We trust the Macungie Institute can be a place where individuals of all ages will enjoy the gift of learning.  We also trust that the building itself will be a place joyfully used by our community.

The Tree of Life at the Macungie Institute was erected with two thoughts in mind.  First, with your kind and thoughtful donation we will have the ability to fund different events and provide for future operating expenses.  Secondly, your donation provides you with the ability to have your family name(s), an individual's name(s), and/or an organization commemorated on a beautifully engraved brass leaf or rock. Gifts of $75 or more receive an engraved leaf; gifts of $150 or more receive an engraved leaf with one star; gifts of $250 or more receive an engraved leaf with two stars; gifts of $500 or more receive an engraved small rock (5 1/2" x 3 1/2"); gifts of $1,000 or more receive a medium rock (7' x 4 1/2"); and gifts of $2,500 or more receive a large rock (8" x 6").

If you desire to make a donation, please send your donation, along with the
donation form, to the Macungie Institute, 510 E. Main Street, Macungie, PA, 18062.  You will receive an acknowledgement of your generous gift, which is tax-deductible, as provided by law.
