Thank you for your contribution this past year. It made an impact in the lives of our students and helped Willamette University faculty and staff to better serve the needs of our students this year. As a donor, you support provided scholarships, built critical infrastructure, and financed faculty enrichment and support so that Willamette could continue to do what it does best: help our graduates to live lives of contribution and meaning. This year, donors to the Willamette Fund with its unrestricted support, helped to provide scholarship access for undergraduate and graduate students, insured facilities upgrades for a number of buildings and dormitories across campus, and increased the base of support for a variety of academic and co-curricular programs and events. These enriched our students and amplified our mission.


Thank you for the role you have played in helping students to have a life-changing Willamette experience. We appreciate you for your vision and support. Together we have made a difference.

Thank you for your support during the 2013-2014 academic and fiscal year.

Each year, gifts to the Willamette Fund provide vital resources for undergraduate and graduate students and professors, scholarship support, classroom technology improvements, facility upgrades and more. Without this support, it would take an additional $26 million in Willamette’s endowment, or an additional tuition charge of $1,000 annually per student at each of the schools to equal the support provided by the Willamette Fund.
