Office of Advancement

Gifts of all sizes support Pacific Lutheran University

Your participation and involvement is what matters! A high faculty and staff giving percentage reflects a vote of confidence in the mission of PLU, helps build a strong foundation for PLU’s future, sets us up to apply for necessary grant dollars and helps us reach our annual fundraising goals. These fundraising goals help students get jobs on campus, bring students to PLU who could not otherwise afford a college education, provide the opportunity for students to study in other countries, and support you, our dedicated faculty and staff.
