Your help is vital in preparing and inspiring this current generation of learners. When you give to PLNU, you’re giving to our students — as they prepare to be the next generation of Christian leaders taking on challenges around the world.

Annual Alumni Give Events

Tuition Freedom Day

At PLNU, tuition covers approximately 76 percent of a student's education costs. Gifts from alumni and other donors, churches, foundations, corporations, and other revenue sources cover the additional 24 percent of a student's education costs. Tuition Freedom Day is hosted each year to raise awareness among students and alumni about the crucial impact others have made in our lives by giving to our education.


Green4Gold is the day to show your PLNU spirit, invest in the future, and make a lasting impact in just a few minutes. It’s our annual 24-hour giving campaign! In 2018, on one day, across world, the PLNU family came together and gave $204,202!

Events for Graduating Seniors

Each spring, the Alumni Association works with a committee of graduating seniors to host two events just for our graduating class!

In March, seniors can enjoy an outdoor dessert reception at sunset on our very own alumni lawn and receive important information about graduation day. On the Thursday before Commencement, seniors and their families enjoy a dinner event honoring our graduates! It is often the last time students will be in the same room with all their friends.
