Student Philanthropy

Student Philanthropy Advisory Committee

What is it?

The Student Philanthropy Advisory Committee is a body of 7-10 students selected by members of Advancement  to serve as an advisory committee for student engagement in University Advancement, and to actively participate in leading the planning of that student engagement. They SPTF will meet a total of 7 times throughout the academic year, working on the graduate gift, as well as taking the time to meet and talk about student philanthropy and engagement.

What do we do?

The intention of the Student Philanthropy Advisory Committee commenced from a desired and deliberate need for student voices when it comes to cultivating a culture of student philanthropy here at PLU. A collection of students chosen as representatives of various divisions of the PLU community will discuss, develop, cultivate, and encourage a culture of student philanthropy. There are three goals centered around the Advisory Committee:

  1. Advocate for student engagement within each division on campus, as well as demographics of students by promoting grad gift events, sharing philanthropy philosophy of PLU.
  2. Communicate about and develop events that encourage philanthropy and gratitude achieved through participation in the Philanthropy Task Force as well as in their areas of academic studies and passions.
  3. Developing cause oriented engagement for student and using the diversity of the Task Force to insure that various divisions of campus and students are engaged in the Task Force’s intentions and each classes legacy.

The Student Philanthropy Advisory Committee will meet six times throughout the year. These meetings will consist of conversations, presentations, and advisement opportunities focused on Education about Student Engagement, Student Perspective on University Money, Student Alumni Relationship, Advancement Advisement, and Student and University Needs.
