Donate to PLU Crew
There are two ways to make your
TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation to PLU Crew through
- Doug Herland Memorial Crew Endowment Fund:
This fund provides long term financial support for the Crew program.
The fund is managed by the University with annual funding to the
Crew program from the interest earned on the fund. The larger the
fund, the more money the team gets every year!
- Lute Club: This provides immediate
financial support. Make your donation through the Lute Club, designating
it specifically for the Crew program, and 100% of your donation
goes directly to the Crew program.
The Lute Crew Alumni Association is focusing its efforts on building
the endowment through the Herland Fund. While we recognize it is important
to help the team today, our goal is also to provide long term support
and stability for the team into the future.
