Giving to the College

Faculty & Staff Giving

As an employee of Lewis & Clark, your daily connection with and support of our mission is invaluable. In addition to sharing your talent and time with Lewis & Clark, your support through giving enables us to provide engaging programs, retain top faculty, and attract unique and eager students.

Why give to Lewis & Clark?

We all give our time, but we can also support Lewis & Clark financially. Whether your gift is for the Annual Fund, or is designated to scholarships and financial aid, it all supports the remarkable education experiences Lewis & Clark students receive.

Who benefits from my gift?

The students! Tuition only covers around 75% of the full cost of a Lewis & Clark education. Gifts from foundations and individuals help to cover the remainder of student costs. Your gift will provide immediate support of our students.

How do I give?

One of the easiest ways to give is through payroll deduction. As a Lewis & Clark employee, you can have your gift automatically deducted from your paycheck. For more information, contact Aaron Whiteford ’00, associate vice president & director of development, at 503-768-7944 or ahw@lclark.edu.

How much do I need to give?

Every dollar makes a difference. Whatever you can give is meaningful and will directly impact our talented students. A monthly gift of $___ provides $___ per year.

  • $5 x 12 = $60
  • $10 x 12 = $120
  • $25 x 12 = $300
  • $50 x 12 = $600

Please note: Lewis & Clark’s fiscal year is from June 1 to May 31.
