La Sierra University is the grateful recipient of generous financial gifts from supporters each year. Your gifts help ensure that our academic programming, scholarship opportunities, facilities, and spiritual life remain strong and relevant for our students, alumni, friends, and community.
Ways to Give
Your gift matters. Find the best option that suits you for giving to La Sierra University.
In the 55 combined years we have been teaching at La Sierra, annual gifts have been an important part of each student’s education because tuition and fees only cover about 60 percent of the actual cost to educate each student. This is still true today, which is why alumni support is as essential now as it has ever been."

Donor Appreciation Brunch
By invitation only, the Donor Appreciation Brunch is a thank you to all of those people who showed their support of LSU by giving a generous gift the Development Department sponsors a brunch at the newly renovated Alumni Center. Donors are invited to bring guests and enjoy a leisurely meal with President Lawrence T. Geraty. It is a good time for our donors to discuss their desires for LSU and learn first-hand about the happenings on campus.
The President's Reception
Our Alumni Center is opened up to members of the community so that President Randal R. Wisbey, can host a new year's reception. It is a time to welcome members of the Riverside community to our campus and offer them a chance to mingle with faculty and administration.
Awards Assembly & Luncheon
Our students are given a chance to celebrate their achievement at an annual Awards Assembly. There is a luncheon following for all presenters of awards so the donors are able to mingle with each other as well as faculty and staff. After extensive thought and careful consideration, as many as 140 students are chosen to receive a total of almost $275,000 in grants, awards and scholarships.
