Annual Fund
Stay Connected!


Dear Lutes,

Thank you for participating in the I Give... campaign! In response to your generosity, and the support of more than 1,000 fellow Lutes, the Board of Regents collectively contributed $185,000 to the PLU Annual Fund. The success of the I Give... campaign was empowered by your thoughtful support - thank you! Your I Give... photos went viral through Facebook and Twitter and your shared reasons for giving inspired others.

Motivated by the outpouring of alumni responses to the I Give... campaign, Alan Anderson '85 co-owner of Burien Toyota/Chevrolet, stepped forward and offered another $25,000 Matching Challenge for the final two weeks of May. With the combined efforts of the I Give... campaign and the Burien Toyota/Chevrolet Matching Challenge we raised more than $1.8 million for Pacific Lutheran University, an 8% increase over last year!

We finished the year strong! By sharing what made PLU special for you, you have made those things possible for today's PLU students.

Best regards,

The Annual Fund Team

What's your reason for giving?

Do your dollars want to create opportunity for a student who's the first in her family to go to college? To ensure that the Lute whose dad just lost his job can stay at PLU? The Scholarship Fund is here, providing vital support so students can focus on what college is all about - academics.

Perhaps your money wants to increase Student/Faculty Research and inspire active learning? Put your money here to support a professor who's revamping her curriculum or involving a student in a new and creative research project.
Does your money want to help Lutes integrate what they learn in class with their community life on campus--and beyond? Giving to Campus Life supports service projects, Campus Ministry, student publications, and 82 clubs where students develop their leadership skills.
Maybe your money wants to be active. If so, send it out to practice and play alongside PLU's outstanding student-athletes. Your money will get a workout, plus it'll help to fund team travel, recruitment, equipment needs, and better facilities. No physical required! Learn more here.
Is your money simply inspired by PLU's mission? Does it want to be used where the needs are greatest at the university? If the answer is yes, send it to this fund, and your gift will be used to carefully respond to needs and opportunities as they arise.
