The Puget Sound Fund

Each year more than 5,000 individuals, corporations, and foundations make a meaningful difference in the lives of Puget Sound students through gifts to the Puget Sound Fund. The fund, composed of the Alumni Fund, Parents Fund, Friends Fund, and Senior Class Gift, is at the very heart of philanthropy at Puget Sound, and provides a reliable source of funding to help cover the cost of university operations and provide financial support for students.

Investments in the mission of the university take many forms. Financial contributions help make a Puget Sound education more affordable and give the university the flexibility to address areas of greatest need. Gifts of time and energy help build our community and bolster the strong culture of giving at Puget Sound. More than 300 students, alumni, parents, and friends volunteer their time each year to participate in giving programs.

Through this annual support Puget Sound is able to remain a vibrant learning environment for current students and generations to come.
