Senior Challenge

Let's leave our mark.

Every year, the graduating class leaves behind a gift as a token of appreciation to the University. The first graduating class of 1964 left the Enormous Luther statue, now lovingly known as Gumby. The class of 2012 started the tradition of donating their gift to the CLU Annual Fund.

Year after year, the generosity of others has impacted the growth of Cal Lutheran. We would like to continue this momentum and growth through the 2017 Senior Giving Challenge. In order to beat last year's senior class, we need to raise $12,000. Don't sit back and wait. You can make an impact right away by supporting this year's challenge with a gift of $20.18. Make your senior gift today!

Why We Give

See what seniors from the Class of 2017 have to say about making their senior gift!

I give back because I have been blessed with so much.

Cal Lutheran has given me the opportunity to pursue and achieve my dreams. Without the generous help of donors before me, I could not have attended Cal Lutheran... I wish to be a part of the next generation of donors to help students come to Cal Lutheran.
