As an independent, non-profit 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 range of students possible, 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.
