BOXER GIVING DAY 2023

Together for Pacific Student Success

March 21 - 22, 2023

 

Pacific University and our new president, Dr. Jenny Coyle, invite the whole community — trustees, alumni, families, faculty, staff and friends — to gather together to support student success by giving to scholarships and programs.

Give to the areas you care about most, including these funds that significantly impact Pacific students: 

  • Pacific Annual Scholarship Fund – Help a student access a Pacific education and persevere in their studies. Every dollar provides financial assistance to a student. Scholarship support is Pacific’s area of greatest need.
  • Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility– Support Pacific’s efforts to develop a diverse community of faculty, students and staff, and foster equity, inclusion and accessibility, as part of our mission to prepare students for success in a diverse, global community.
  • Research – Give to the Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects to support scholarly research in graduate and undergraduate studies at Pacific, the top private research university in the Pacific Northwest.
  • Student Life Excellence Fund - Support the holistic development of all students through opportunities for engagement, well-being and learning so that students may realize their personal potential. 
  • Pacific University President's Global Education Fund – Support the opportunity for students to experience other lands and cultures, practice language skills and gain a wider perspective as global citizens.
  • College Excellence Funds – Enhance opportunities and resources for students in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Business, Education, Health Professions and Optometry.
  • Athletic Director’s Fund – Support a top-notch athletic experience for Pacific student-athletes.
  • Library Excellence Fund – Give to Pacific Libraries to support services on four campuses.

 

Your gift to Pacific University makes an impact on the opportunities and resources for our students. Make a gift today to enhance their possibilities for the future.

For more information or to make a gift by phone, please contact the Annual Giving Office at give@pacificu.edu or (503)352-2211.
