🎉 GiveBIG Matching Challenge: Make a gift by May 8 to amplify your impact! 🎉

For a limited time, a group of PLU alumni who believe in scholarships will match your GiveBig donation $ for $.

Here’s how it works:

-Make a gift of any size.

-Our generous donors will give $1 for every $1 that you give. Ex. if you give $100, they give $100. *Max $20,000 from our matching donors.


During GiveBIG, you're invited to invest in the future of our beloved Washington state.

🎇 Your gift today will help spark a brighter future through PLU students. 🎇

As a regional-serving university, 73.8% of first-year PLU students in fall 2022 were from Washington. You can uplift the next generation of local teachers, business owners, nurses, social workers and other changemakers. Graduates from PLU become anchors and thought leaders in their communities, impacting the overall well-being of those around them.

A better future is being shaped right now by PLU students. They’re doing this by serving and leading with care for others, their communities and the earth. Your gift to student scholarships can be part of a collective effort to fuel their positive impact.

Help us unlock the full $20,000 match so that more exceptional students can make a difference in Washington State and beyond.


📣 Here's what a PLU scholarship recipient has to say about your impact. 📣

"I am a Rieke Scholar, which includes advocating for diversity, justice, and sustainability and leading events and conversations that contribute to that advocacy and strengthen the community. This includes many meetings on things to improve to promote DJS, which then leads to change.

I am very grateful for this opportunity as the financial costs of a college education have been a large struggle for my family. I really enjoy going to PLU and am grateful for any opportunity that allows me to stay here and follow my aspirations." -Emily Alexander, majoring in Biology ('25)
