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 2019 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 $20.19. Make your senior gift today!

Goal: $12,000

Why We Give

See what members from the Class of 2018 had to say about making their senior gift!

Thanks to the support of the CLU Annual Fund, I am able to pursue a higher education and become the first in my family to graduate from college. I'll be forever grateful to Cal Lutheran!
