Happy Holidays from the PLU University Relations!

All 2023 gifts, including online gifts, credit card gifts, or gifts of appreciated securities, must be received by PLU by December 31, 2023 to be included in your year-end tax summary. The only exception is checks received via mail. Checks that are postmarked on or before December 31, 2023 will be receipted with a 2023 gift date. We will mail a gift receipt to you; please keep your receipts for tax purposes.

We wish you and your family a joyous holiday and best wishes in the New Year!

Please note that the office will be closed December 23-January 1, but phone and email messages will be checked and responded to periodically during that time.

Any checks received after December 29 will be deposited in the new year but credited to 2023 if postmarked on or before December 31.
