Honor Roll of Donors
Support for Pacific Lutheran University comes in many forms. Our friends and alumni share their time, talent and financial resources to help the university thrive. This Honor Roll of Donors presents the names of the people and groups who have contributed to PLU during the past year. Listed alphabetically are those who have made the success of PLU possible through their generous donations.
Throughout the list are profiles of a few of those who have inspired PLU through their contributions of time and resources.
PLU recognizes all members of the Lifetime Giving Society, the Heritage Society, the Q Club, the Matching Gift Program and the Independent Colleges of Washington, as well as all donors who made gifts between June 1, 2001 and May 31, 2002. All contributors are listed once, in alphabetical order, with a key of different giving organizations.
Lifetime Giving Society (L)
The Lifetime Giving Society recognizes an extraordinary group of donors who have given faithfully and consistently over time to sustain and support Pacific Lutheran University. Lifetime giving includes the total recorded gifts and current pledges of cash, securities, real estate and appreciated property, and includes the charitable value of irrevocable planned gifts. These totals do not include revocable deferred gifts or gifts to KPLU.
Heritage Society (H)
Heritage Society is a group of donors committed to securing PLUs future by making provisions for the university in their estate plans. The most common estate gift involves donating a portion of estate proceeds to PLU as part of a will. By using current assets to establish a charitable trust or gift annuity, donors can receive an income stream for the remainder of their lives, with the remaining trust assets going to PLU upon their deaths.
Q Club (Q)
With a minimum contribution of $300 annually (student giving levels begin at $60 a year), one can join this gathering of dedicated friends whose mission is to provide assistance to deserving students as they prepare for lives of service through a Pacific Lutheran University education. Q Club is the "giving club" of PLUs annual fund, and the more than 2,000 members provide the core of scholarship support.
Matching Gift Program (M)
The Matching Gift Program recognizes companies and foundations that have contributed to PLU by matching the gifts of their employees. This support is either designated to a particular fund identified by the employee or given to the unrestricted fund.
Independent Colleges of Washington (I)
Designation is for individuals, companies and foundations who have contributed to PLU by making contributions through the Independent Colleges of Washington. ICW supports private higher education in Washington by soliciting unrestricted gifts from many individuals, businesses and foundations.
