Ways to Give

Lead gifts from the Swenson and Gilbert families, along with other principal gifts, have generated two-thirds of the funding needed to break ground. With your support, the Swenson Science Center will become a reality for our students.



Your contribution will help transform the way students pursue science for a purpose, and empower them to change the world.

Jim and Sue Swenson, both H'12

We both recognize the critical need to upgrade Cal Lutheran's science labs and teaching space, as so many students will be positively impacted.

Carol Gilbert and Rod Gilbert, H'16
