Last May Q Club celebrated its 25th anniversary. Q Club is a volunteer organization that raises funds for scholarships. With a membership of more than 2,000, it provided more than $1.25 million in scholarships last year alone. Q Club members receive regular communications from PLU and various special opportunities from the university throughout the year.
      Q Club provides an opportunity for you to strengthen your relationship with the PLU family. Even more important, alumni, parents and friends who appreciate the value of a PLU education can help provide the experience to the next generation of students. As these students graduate and take their places in the world of work, their attitude of service will make a difference in our schools, our healthcare facilities, our businesses and our communities. And we will be making a difference through them.
      If you are a member of Q Club, thank you for your support! In an effort to help even more students, I challenge you to recruit another member or increase your annual giving. If you are not a member, I encourage you to join! Q Club includes student members, recent graduates (associate members) and members who contribute at a wide range of giving levels. For more information about Q Club, call the Q Club office at 253-535-7429 or 800-258-6758.
      Investing in the lives of others is what Q Club is all about. I hope you join us!
