Transforming the world starts with transforming a life. Invest in a PLNU student.

Invest in a PLNU student. Be a part of the transformation.

At PLNU, we believe in helping students fully realize their identity in Christ and become who they are called to be. This belief has driven a model of holistic higher education in a vital Christian community — where minds are engaged and challenged, character is modeled and formed, and service is an expression of faith.

That’s why PLNU graduates are prepared to confidently and joyfully live out their unique callings, engaging the culture and transforming the world, their communities, their families, and themselves.

Transformation starts with the one. One heart. One mind. One gift.

Impact the One

"There is a difference between knowing what you are called to do and knowing how you will live out your call." That is the start of Alexis de la Mora's story in this year's Annual Report, Becoming Who We're Called to Be, Together. Like all PLNU students, Alexis's story is as unique as she is, and yet the struggles, the lessons, and the breakthroughs she experiences resonate with so many. 

Each year, we gather stories of students and alumni who are finding transformation and wholeness amidst their academic preparation, and who are being prepared to serve the world around them — all because of the intentional gifts of people like you. It is our way of testifying to the good works of so many, and our way of saying thank you.

"When I first applied to PLNU, my family was very wary, wondering how we were going to afford it. Without the scholarships provided by people like you, I would not be here. Your gifts really do make an impact on students like me."
