University Advancement



The 2018 President’s Circle dinner will take place in this fall; the date and other details will be announced soon.

The Annual President’s Circle Dinner honors generous donors of Seattle Pacific University and allows the University to express heartfelt thanks to alumni, faculty members, parents, staff, and friends who are members of this remarkable philanthropic society.

A highlight of this evening is the presentation of the President’s Award for Philanthropy. This award is given to an individual, couple, or family who has made a significant impact on Seattle Pacific University and its mission by modeling generous giving. Honorees are outstanding philanthropic leaders who have invested their passion, time, talents, and financial support to better SPU and the broader community.

At the November 2015 President’s Circle Dinner, alumna Becky Gilliam accepted the President’s Award for Philanthropy. Other highlights included performances by students and keynote from President Dan Martin.
