Thank you for choosing California Lutheran University to facilitate your commitment to giving.
We value you – our generous donors – for helping us grow a vibrant university.

It all starts with you.

Your support makes a difference—to the student in the lab, the faculty member in the classroom, the athlete on the field, and the scholar studying abroad.

Your generosity ensures that Cal Lutheran students have the opportunity to discover and live their purpose. And your influence doesn't end there. Because when our students discover and live their purpose, they become ethical, well-rounded graduates prepared to transform the world.
