About

πŸ“£ Bjug Day 2020 may be over — but Bjug Day 2021 is coming your way Oct. 19-20! πŸ“£

Watch for www.plu.edu/bjugday to switch over as soon as the 2021 page goes live. In the meantime, enjoy browsing last year's page. Imagine what we can do this year!  

If you'd like to be part of the community-inspiring group of scholarship match donors with a gift of $5,000 or more, please contact giftsupport@plu.edu.

See you Oct. 19-20, 2021 to "Go Bjug!" 





Let’s come together as Lutes to show the world that we’re still committed to what we love! 

Gifts of all sizes make a difference and you can make a gift to anything you love at PLU and have it matched with a gift to student scholarships.

Bjug Day has always been a fun philanthropic tradition. And this year because of the financial impact of the pandemic, it’s more important than ever to come together to raise money for student scholarships and other causes across PLU. 

Your support right now of what you love at PLU helps students continue their education and sets students up to lead lives of thoughtful inquiry, service, leadership and care. (Just the kind of people our world needs!)

We know not everyone can give right now, but if you can, we hope you will. If you can’t give a donation at this time, you can still help by making sure other Lutes know about Bjug Day. Share on social media using and tell others what you love about PLU. 

However you β€œGo Bjug,” thank you!

Let's get to 1,250 strong and beyond!


Already 1,050 people have participated in this big-hearted day! But we're not done yet and there's still scholarship match dollars to unlock! Let's keep pushing, Lutes, during this time of increased need. Can we get to 1,250 strong and beyond?
