In light of KISS' End of the Road Tour concert in Portland on Friday, Pacific also thanks Tommy for his long-standing support of Pacific as a Trustee and through many philanthropic ventures.
The university thanked its most dedicated donors, including the latest inductees of the 1849 Society and President's Circle, during the annual Celebration of Giving, held Nov. 29.
A grassroots fundraising initiative, funded entirely through gifts by alumni, students and friends of Pacific, has resulted in the creation of a new statue of Pacific’s beloved mascot almost five decades after the original Boxer went missing.
Alumni & friends rise to the occasion to support Lead On: The Campaign for Tomorrow at Pacific University. Pacific University recently completed its most successful year of giving in school history, with donors contributing gifts and pledges totaling nearly $12.4 million between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018.
"Pacific has made me who I am and has set me up for success."
"We give because Pacific is a part of our family."
" I had a really, really good education, and even more than that, I had a great mentor."
"I give to the success of my current and future students."
"Pacific is a great place to be, and giving back keeps me involved in the university."
“If it wasn’t for those who gave before me, I wouldn’t be able to attend Pacific.”
