"Willamette has had a huge positive impact on me both personally and professionally. My "Why?" for giving to the University in terms of both money and time? It is because I am not only committed to helping future students share in that learning, personal growth, and overall experience, but also because I want to support the continuation of the Willamette community which has been so important to me for all these years." Peter Wallmark '68, WU Alumni Board Member
