Grad Gift

What is Grad Gift?

Grad Gift is a student led program designed to foster class unity and philanthropy. We are encouraging members of the Class of 2016 to come together to support the future of PLU students by making a gift of any size to the PLU Fund. This fund provides student scholarships and enhances opportunities for Lutes to get involved in student-led clubs and organizations, athletics, internships and leadership development programs. If it wasn’t for the generous group of alumni and friends who support PLU, 97% of us would not have the scholarships we do. Now that we are joining the alumni family, let’s come together and ensure PLU will continue to improve for future generations.

Grad Gift 2016 will consist of two events to help achieve these goals: Trivia Night and a Class of 2016 gathering at the Haven Pub. Let’s celebrate our class and make a difference for future Lutes by attending and spending money at these events. You can make your donation to Grad Gift at these events, or if you are not able to attend, you can make your gift online or at the Concierge desk in the UC. The money that is donated will be invested back into scholarships for future Lutes.

The Presidents Match!

With everyone’s participation, one dollar can go a long way!

We reached out to President and Mrs. Krise about making our dollars mean more. They have very generously agreed to make a matching gift based on participation from the Class of 2016! For every 1% of students or every 6 people, who donate $1 or more, the Krise’s will donate $100 to the Grad Gift campaign. If 100% of the Class of 2016 participates they will donate $25,000 in order to fully endow a new scholarship in honor of the Class of 2016.
