The Department of English plays a vital role at the University, and it is a valuable resource for the larger Portland
community. Additionally, the Friends of English organization encourages alumni and community members to stay connected to the
department and to the reading and study of literature by sponsoring public lectures and readings.
Your tax-deductible donation promotes excellence by supplying the English department with the resources needed
to support our students and faculty, as well as to continue the competitiveness of our graduate programs.
You can make a gift to the Department of English or to Friends of English online through the
Portland State University Foundation.
Your donations help keep our department strong. Thank you for your support!
