A strong annual fund is important to every university. The Willamette Fund (Willamette’s annual fund) has been called a living endowment, providing essential support each year to Willamette’s students, professors and facilities. The generosity and support of alumni, parents, Willamette staff, friends and current students allows Willamette the ability to budget wisely, utilizing the Willamette Fund to support all areas of the University.
Without this support, it would take an additional $26 million in Willamette’s endowment, or an additional tuition charge of $1,500 annually per student at each of the schools to equal the support provided by the Willamette Fund.
