Giving to Linfield

Faculty and Staff Testimonials

Why do I give to Linfield?


“Thirty years ago, I attended Linfield as a first-generation college student and that experience changed my life. My giving is motivated by a profound sense of gratitude but primarily because of my incredible students. I know that without additional resources, many of my students couldn’t afford to attend, and that would be truly unfortunate.”

-Denise Farag ’88, Associate Professor of Business Law







“I have taught at Linfield for 25 years, and every year I have seen the positive difference the college makes in the lives of its students.  That is something I wish to support.”

-Jeff Summers, Professor and Department Chair of Economics





“I give to Linfield because I like seeing how my donation enables students to apply what they learn in classes in the real world.”

-Dawn Graff-Haight, Associate Professor of Health Education






“I give to Linfield because every little bit makes a genuine difference in expanding students’ horizons and thereby equipping them to become global citizens.”

-Tom Love, Professor of Anthropology, Member Environmental Studies Faculty, Coordinator of Latin American Studies
