What We Do

Our Mission:

The mission of Biola's Office of Advancement is to build caring, authentic relationships with alumni, parents, students and supporters that result in generosity to Biola University.

How We Live It:

We do this by proactively sharing Biola’s story to our constituencies through thoughtful storytelling, memorable event experiences, inspiring donor communication, genuine relationship building, meaningful volunteer engagement, practical stewardship training, helpful estate planning, and accurate donor research, in order to:

  1. Make a Biola education affordable and accessible for more students
  2. Resource Biola’s quality learning environment so our faculty and student body are free to learn and grow in Christian community as tomorrow’s culture creators.
