Sharing a Passion for Helping Tomorrow’s Students


Lena and Marc Malacoff have made it their goal to extend their support to help tomorrow's generation of students—specifically in the School of Pharmacy.

Lena, a relief pharmacist and instructor at UH, and Marc were able to establish an endowed scholarship by making a five-year pledge. To fund their gift, the couple took advantage of Marc's employer's offer to match charitable contributions to institutions of higher education two-to-one.

The Malacoffs have also included UH in their estate plans by designating the University as a recipient of a percentage of their estate, which will go to their endowment.

"It's a good feeling to know that when we both pass, we're leaving a little bit of a legacy behind to keep our mission of supporting the students," Marc said.
