Feed the Pig Campaign

About Feed the Pig

Feed The Pig is a student-led initiative run by freshmen that collects donations for the Freshmen Textbook Scholarship. The scholarship aims to provide textbooks for students for a whole academic year. Students apply as freshmen and then receive their scholarships as sophomores. Feed the Pig is represented by Pig Cardinal Banks, best friend of Willamette University's mascot, Blitz. Under the leadership of Cardinal Banks, freshmen begin a philanthropic legacy that embodies Willamette's motto, "Not unto ourselves alone are we born."

Want to help contribute?

Students can help get involved by dropping off their spare change in the piggy banks located around campus. You can also give online by clicking the button below.
