Your gift to the University of Portland Annual Fund is a demonstration of your ongoing loyalty and support. The importance of the generosity of our alumni, parents, and friends in providing unrestricted funds (the donor allows the University to determine how the money can be best used) cannot be overstated.
Your Annual Fund gift allows the University to address our most important priorities including financial aid that provides critical tuition relief for students, faculty enrichment, library acquisitions in all media, and extraordinary operating expenses for each of the Schools and the University as a whole.
Your participation in the Annual Fund is vital: foundations consider alumni participation when deciding on possible grants. Popular magazines and organizations consider participation in giving when creating their rankings. Your participation is seen as a measure of satisfaction with your education.
