One Pine Day FAQs

What is One Pine Day?

One Pine Day is Whitworth University's annual one-day giving event that benefits students.

Why does my involvement in One Pine Day matter?

Your relationship with Whitworth is lifelong. From sharing about One Pine Day on social media to making a financial gift of any size, your participation inspires fellow Whitworthians to join you in caring for students. Your involvement supports a shared tradition of care and generosity that makes Whitworth special.

How can my gift of any size make a difference?

Your gift of any size is incredibly powerful! Your gift, when combined with others’ gifts, builds momentum and adds up to make a BIG impact, ensuring that Whitworth can adapt to the needs of students and close gaps in funding.

You can direct your gift to any project, program or academic department you care about. Whether you support the Whitworth Scholarship Fund, the Thrive Fund, or other initiatives such as a crowdfunding project, your gift directly helps students flourish.

When you give, you are participating in something bigger than yourself!

Why is One Pine Day actually longer than one day?

One Pine Day lasts 1,890 minutes in honor of Whitworth's founding in February 1890.
