Together, We Make PLU Possible

Through the PLU Annual Fund, thousands of alumni and friends make regular gifts to the university. Simply by giving, our donors help bring PLU's mission to life--to educate students for lives of thoughtful inquiry, service, leadership, and care.

Annual Fund donors support:

  • Scholarships for deserving students with financial need.
  • Priorities and programs that enrich the educational experience.
  • Lute Club Athletics, including specific sports.
  • Academic divisions and programs.

Please make a gift to the PLU Annual Fund today. Together, we make PLU possible.

My heart said "PLU." It's where I was called to be.

Anna Milliren '13 speaks about studying social justice issues and the impact scholarships have made on her ability to attend Pacific Lutheran University.

What's your reason for giving?

Do your dollars want to create opportunity for a student who's the first in her family to go to college? To ensure that the Lute whose dad just lost his job can stay at PLU? The Scholarship Fund is here, providing vital support so students can focus on what college is all about - academics.

Perhaps your money wants to increase Student/Faculty Research and inspire active learning? Put your money here to support a professor who's revamping her curriculum or involving a student in a new and creative research project.
Does your money want to help Lutes integrate what they learn in class with their community life on campus--and beyond? Giving to Campus Life supports service projects, Campus Ministry, student publications, and 82 clubs where students develop their leadership skills.
Maybe your money wants to be active. If so, send it out to practice and play alongside PLU's outstanding student-athletes. Your money will get a workout, plus it'll help to fund team travel, recruitment, equipment needs, and better facilities. No physical required! Learn more here.
Is your money simply inspired by PLU's mission? Does it want to be used where the needs are greatest at the university? If the answer is yes, send it to this fund, and your gift will be used to carefully respond to needs and opportunities as they arise.

So which fund sounds right for your money? If you can't decide, you can always choose more than one. Thank you for making PLU possible.
