2015 Year-end Giving

Do you plan to make a charitable donation in support of Willamette’s mission this year?


As the time draws nigh, make your year-end gift by 11:59 PM on Thursday, Dec. 31 to reduce your 2015 tax burden.

The extended Willamette University family is brimming with visionaries, innovators, and leaders who, whether working in the spotlight or under the radar, are changing how we look at the world and the way we live in it. In this season of giving, please take a moment to make a gift in support of their incredible promise.
