The Puget Sound Alumni Fund affords bright, talented men and women the opportunity to receive an education of the highest quality in the liberal arts and sciences. Without the support of thousands of alumni, an education at the University of Puget Sound would not be possible for many deserving students.
The Alumni Fund is the backbone of fiscal health for the university, providing support for the university's greatest needs and the never-ending need for increased financial aid.
Thanks to the participation of 5,131 alumni who supported the Alumni Fund, the University of Puget Sound received $1,380,964 in fiscal year 2012-13.
Through the Puget Sound Alumni Fund, Parents Fund, Friends Fund, financial aid endowment, and other resources, the university is able to meet the full financial need of only 52% of the students who have need. Each student with unmet need must make up an average of $5,121 per year through off-campus jobs and borrowing. Your gift to the Alumni Fund provides financial aid resources for the deserving students who have earned a Puget Sound education but do not have the resources to afford one.
Besides financial aid, the Alumni Fund provides necessary funds to enable the university to respond quickly to opportunities that enrich the Puget Sound experience:
