Annual Impact Report

Because of you, we are able to adapt, to grow, and to thrive. Your philanthropic support allows us to offer an “Only at Willamette” education to a new wave of go-getters and difference-makers who will transform knowledge into action and lead lives of achievement, contribution and meaning. You make a difference to our students and our community every day.

Donors receive an annual report each year about the impact they made on students and faculty during the past academic year.

Once a year, a financial report is sent to the designee of every endowed fund.


Giving Societies

Choosing to Lead

When students learn that members of their own community believe in them enough to invest in their success, they're thrilled by that knowledge. You can cause that thrill. You can be a leader.

If you choose to make a gift of $1,000 or more, you'll become a member of Willamette's Leadership Circle, a group of alumni, parents, and volunteers committed to changing the lives of students for generations to come.

If this responsibility is right for you, please make your gift today.

I am a Leader.

Booth Society is an expression of appreciation to those individuals who, in spirit of its namesake, provide for future generations at Willamette University by establishing planned gifts that benefit the University. R.A. Booth Society members have affirmed Willamette's motto --- "not unto ourselves alone are we born." These gifts include bequests, gift annuities, charitable trusts, retirement-plan designations, and life insurance policies.
