Oak Tree Society Oak Leaf

Giving for 3+​ consecutive years

The oak tree has often been used as a symbol of strength, nobility, and longevity. Similarly, the Oak Tree Society honors donors who have shown a commitment to giving to the CLU Annual Fund for three or more years consecutively. A gift, no matter how big or small, that is given every year to the University grows to the power of an oak tree when it is joined with gifts from other Cal Lutheran alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends.

Oak Tree Society members are recognized at Cal Lutheran events as well as on our websites and on printed donor lists by the symbol of an oak leaf next to their names.
