Supporting Pacific Lutheran University

As an independent nonprofit university, PLU has two primary sources of revenue – tuition and gift support. In order to keep tuition at a level that enables the university to serve the broadest possible range of students, PLU relies on the generous support of alumni, friends, corporations and foundations.

The Office of Advancement works to raise charitable contributions, which support the mission of Pacific Lutheran University. Contributions are made in a variety of ways and used to enhance the programs and services that make a PLU education distinctive. Please visit our donation page to make a gift now.

The PLU Tax Identification Number is 91-0565571.

PLU Fund

The PLU Fund provides vital support during the academic school year. Donors to the PLU Fund provide scholarships to deserving students with financial need. They support academic and co-curricular excellence, and provide critical resources for student-athletes through gifts to the Lute Club Athletics Fund.


PLU relies on its endowment to provide support in perpetuity for a host of needs, including financial aid and research and faculty development. The principle of the endowment is never spent; only interest income is used for spending needs.

Gift Planning

These are tax-advantaged ways to support the university both now and in the future. Planned gifts include provisions made in donors' wills, gift annuities and the establishment of various trust vehicles. Often planned gifts are used to establish future named endowment funds.
