Designated Giving

Lewis & Clark has always attracted creative thinkers and leaders. We offer many opportunities for you to advance their work and ideas.

The Annual Fund directly supports our highest academic and operational priorities, and remains our strongest and most flexible means of support. We also offer other opportunities for you to designate how your gift will be used. Direct your Annual Fund gift to a specific program or area of need, give to any of the restricted funds listed below, or get in touch with us to discuss the best way for meeting your interests.

To find out more about how to designate a gift for a particular purpose at the graduate school, please contact Rebecca Holt, Senior Development Officer, at 503-768-7943 or

Designated Funds
  • The William Stafford Project began when forty years of daily journals and papers belonging to the former U.S. Poet Laureate were donated for safeguarding and digitization to the Watzek Library.
  • Courage to Teach, a program designed especially for K–12 teachers, focuses on renewing the inner life of the teacher. The program started with seasonal retreats, and is growing to become a full-year cycle.
