What Your Gifts Do
Your Gifts at Work
Maintaining the strength of our programs depends greatly on the generous and loyal support of our donors.
Our students benefit from nationally recognized professors, research opportunities, and life-changing overseas programs. Rigorous courses of study and personal mentoring open the world to students and help them make their place in it.
We are committed to making sure that Lewis & Clark is within reach of students from a wide variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. 90 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid.
Student life and services
Whether dedicated to basketball or Bach, or to community service and College Outdoors, students exercise and expand their interests at Lewis & Clark. Co-curricular programs build leadership skills and connect students with communities in and beyond Portland.

Administration and support services
Executive leadership guides the initiatives that keep Lewis & Clark moving forward. Offices such as Admissions, Campus Safety, and Human Resources keep us up and running. And, last year, Institutional Advancement raised more than $8 million in support.
Campus and facilities
We steward one of the nation’s most beautiful campuses in ways that sustain our heritage properties while enhancing learning for today’s students.
