Why do you give to Whitworth?: "We believe higher education can be transformative, and we want to support an institution that fosters both critical thinking and compassionate involvement in the world." --- If you had $1 million to give, what would you do with it?: "We’d add some gift cards to the Help-A-Pirate Fund, which provides one-time support for students in crisis.

We believe in Whitworth’s mission and have seen the impact a Whitworth education can have on a great many students." --- If you had one million dollars to give to Whitworth, what would you do with it?: "I’d probably give half of it for scholarships for study abroad, and the other half for scholarships for international students."

“My favorite thing about Whitworth University is how each member of the institution cares so deeply and authentically for those around him or her.

Why do you give to Whitworth?: "I feel that we change students’ lives here. God has been gracious to my husband and me. I believe we are called to give back to organizations we believe in." --- If you had $1 million to give, what would you do with it?: "I tend to be a 'debt-averse' person. I would like to see Whitworth reduce the debt. $1 million would not go far & would be unseen, but I think it would serve future students in the greatest way to have the university debt-free."
