  • Gifts in Honor or in Memory

    Commemorating a special person this holiday season with a gift to Gonzaga University can be tremendously satisfying. It is a lasting tribute to a loved one, friend, or colleague, and it provides valuable support to GU.

    A gift "in honor of" someone is usually made while that person is living, often for celebratory occasions such as Christmas, graduation, promotion, birth of a child or grandchild, or retirement. A gift "in memory of" someone is the term used when the namesake is deceased.

    You may designate the placement of your gift and choose a program important to you or the gift's namesake. If you need help selecting a program, a member of our development staff would be happy to help with suggestions.

    You may even want to create a fund in someone's name. It may be a one-time fund, or one you and others can contribute to continually. Sometimes these funds are endowed. This means that your gift is invested and only the income will be used. An endowed fund usually requires a substantial gift to generate sufficient income. For specific information on endowments, contact Heidi Wohl at (509) 313-6395 or

  • Make a Pledge

    You can very easily make a pledge now, and then request that the University remind you or charge your credit card at a specific time in the future. Making a pledge gives you the opportunity to distribute your payments throughout the year, allowing you to consider a larger gift to the University.

    For your convenience, billing arrangements can be made monthly, quarterly, or annually. We gladly accept the following forms of payment: cash, check, credit card, electronic fund transfer, and stocks/securities.

    We greatly appreciate your interest in supporting Gonzaga University. You can make your pledge online by completing the form below. When your pledge is received, we will mail an acknowledgement and a return envelope for your payment.
