He left a legacy that cannot be measured.

America’s National Churchill Museum at Westminster College received a generous gift from Edwin Malloy, Jr. as part of a long-term planned gift to bolster the Museum’s endowment. Before his death in 2005, Edwin Malloy, Jr. established the Edwin Malloy Jr. Trust to benefit several charitable organizations whose missions aligned with his own interests. Over the course of the past fifteen years, the Malloy Trust has made quarterly distributions for the Museum’s endowment. The gift—in excess of $500,000—was fully funded earlier this year. The earnings from the newly created Edwin Malloy Jr. Endowment for America’s National Churchill Museum will permanently support the Museum, ensuring that Churchill’s legacy, and that of Mr. Malloy, will endure.

A 1940 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, Edwin Malloy, Jr. was a commissioned officer on the USS Colorado in the Pacific, earning the rank of Lieutenant Commander and eventually Commander before retiring from the Navy in 1946.

After he received his Master of Science degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology he returned to his native Cheraw, South Carolina, where he enjoyed a successful career in business. He was a true servant leader remaining active throughout his life in the Presbyterian Church, the Cheraw Kiwanis Club, the American Legion, and the Boy Scouts of America.

“The positive impact of this gift, like the impact of Mr. Malloy’s incredible life of service, will be felt for generations to come,” said Sandra L. and Monroe E. Trout Director and Chief Curator Timothy Riley of America’s National Churchill Museum at Westminster College. “Current and future students, visitors, and Churchillians will benefit greatly from Edwin Malloy’s generosity and permanent endorsement of the Museum’s mission. For that, we are exceedingly grateful.” The Churchill Museum Legacy Circle recognizes those, like Edwin Malloy Jr., who remember America’s National Churchill Museum through a planned gift. Membership in the Legacy Circle is extended to anyone who has made a commitment to support America’s National Churchill with a planned gift through their estate and informed the Museum of these plans. America’s National Churchill Museum has been fortunate to have a planned giving history that dates back over 40 years. Planned gifts have become an important part of the Museum’s tradition, providing a way for members, Churchillians, Fellows, and friends to leave a legacy to help ensure the future of the Museum.
