Ways to Support the Restoration

Seattle Pacific University’s Alexander Hall is in urgent need of your help.

You can be part of the ongoing story of Seattle Pacific by ensuring that Alexander Hall endures as a significant influence in the life of the University, the city of Seattle, and the state of Washington. Your gift to the Alexander Hall restoration project will make a difference for this and future generations.

Costs for the Alexander Hall restoration project total $7 million. When you invest in Alexander Hall’s restoration, you are:

  • Ensuring the continuity of SPU’s vision into the future
  • Preserving a part of SPU, Seattle, and Washington state history
  • Supporting the type of cutting-edge scholarship and student mentorship at SPU that changes the world for the better
  • Teaching students that history is important and worth remembering — because it shaped who we are today and provides lessons for the future
  • Launching SPU into its next 125 years

A building can’t change the world. But the people who live, study, learn, pray, advise, and mentor within its walls can. Since Alexander Hall was built, Seattle Pacific University has sent 40,000 alumni from this place to use their scholarship in service to others. Your gift will honor them and help prepare the next generation to do the same.
