"Yes, I am enthusiastic about PLU! However, my enthusiasm is embedded in reality. PLU's many supporters demonstrated in the last campaign that a major fund-raising campaign could be successful beyond our wildest dreams. The current campaign is moving along very well, and I predict PLU's friends will collectively help us surpass our $100 million goal. I know firsthand how critical the success of this campaign will be to the long-term future of the university. Part of my consideration to participate in the campaign is PLU's obvious need to upgrade several of the existing campus buildings. Current campaign efforts will help accomplish that important objective."

"An investment in PLU's endowment becomes an investment in students, society and the world; something that will still be causing ripples throughout the new millennium."
"It's very important, through the Endowment Fund, to continue the greatness of the university; to be able to do things that cannot be done with the operating budget. It's this that makes the distinction between a great university and an ordinary university."
"PLU has a long and rich tradition of preparing young men and women, not only to excel in their chosen vocational endeavors, but also to live useful lives in service to others. This tradition, commitment and experience is worthy of our safekeeping. I'm pleased and excited to work on behalf of The Campaign for Pacific Lutheran University: The Next Bold Step. As I visit with alums I'm always impressed by how important their PLU experience was in shaping their values, and in preparing them for their life experiences. Our future, as was true in the past, will depend on persons who are prepared and willing to be of service to others. PLU has the resources, commitment, and experience to continue this important tradition. Through our combined generosity, we can ensure The Next Bold Step into a second century of "educating for service" at Pacific Lutheran University."

"I'm so enthusiastic about working on the campaign as co-chair and also as part of the leadership committee for the Center for Learning and Technology because I have seen what a dramatic difference the last campaign made for PLU. Our endowment is still low, but has increased at a very respectable rate. The university is now on a sound financial footing and ready to move forward into the future. I graduated from the School of Business and am very excited about building an excellent facility that will house the School of Business and serve other disciplines and the community. The building renovations that will be made will preserve and bring much-needed technology to two of our older campus buildings, as well as provide an appropriate space for KPLU."
