Father Duffy Day - February 24

Help us bring back a Malvern tradition!

Thank you to the 62 donors who contributed more than $10,000 on Father Duffy Day! See the list.

This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the passing of Father Dave Duffy, O.S.A. '48. For many years, we celebrated his life by making an extra effort to make someone feel special on Father Duffy's birthday - February 24. This year, we want to bring back Father Duffy Day!

On this day, we ask that you reach out to someone who needs a boost or deserves our thanks - that is what Father Duffy would have done! In addition, we ask that you continue Father Duffy's legacy of support and love for Malvern Prep by making a Gift of Gratitude for someone special in your life. Maybe it is a teacher or coach who made an impact on your life, or a friend who stood by you when you needed him most.

How It Works:

On February 24, click here to make a gift to The Malvern Fund. Select "Gift of Gratitude" from the drop-down menu. Make sure you recognize that special person in the "Tribute Information" section.

Your gift will be included in this special one-day giving drive, and we will post your name and the name of the person you recognize on the Malvern website and in Malvern Today, our annual report of giving!

We have been sharing photos and memories of Father Duffy through #ThrowbackThursday and #FlashbackFriday on social media.
Follow Malvern Prep on Facebook and Twitter to join the conversation.

Malvern students say why they are grateful.
