Marylhurst Graduating Class Gifts

The Graduation Class Gift program brings together members of each year’s graduating class to make a commemorative gift that honors their time as students at the university. Class gifts support scholarships, professional resources for students and faculty, and improved campus facilities. They also demonstrate to prospective students, university donors and the community at large that Marylhurst alumni care deeply about their alma mater. We encourage participation from all students, whether they take classes during the day, in the evening or online.

Reunion Class Gifts

Reunion class gifts are made by classes celebrating a reunion year. Classmates join together in support of Marylhurst’s future by making a reunion class gift toward areas of need, such as student scholarships, library resources and the historical preservation of the beautiful Marylhurst campus.

Memorial Gifts

Memorial gifts are given in memory of a particular individual and can help perpetuate the values and ideals that guided that person’s life. Memorial gifts may be directed to The Marylhurst Fund, a scholarship or toward a campus priority.

Tribute Gifts

Tribute gifts commemorate a significant event or person who is still living. Tribute gifts may be directed to The Marylhurst Fund, a scholarship or toward a campus priority.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts from an employer can multiply your gift. Check with your company’s human resources office or contact the Office of University Advancement at 503.699.6251 or with questions about matching gifts.
