Larry Levy, a student in Portland State University's senior adult learning program, recently made gifts totaling $705,000 to create the Lawrence Levy Travel Study Scholarship Fund for PSU students.

His gift contributed to the PSU Foundation's recent record-breaking fundraising success. In the fiscal year that ended on June 30, the foundation raised $46 million in private gifts to support PSU, an 18 percent increase over the previous year. It marked the fifth year in a row that private giving to PSU has increased.

Levy and his wife, Pamela Lindholm-Levy, have been generous supporters of PSU for more than a decade, with contributions to the Lorry I. Lokey Jewish Studies Library Fund, Friends of History, the President's Circle and the International Community Development Fund. Last year, they established the Larry Levy and Pamela Lindholm-Levy Judaic Studies Program Fund at PSU.

Levy is a retired attorney and he and Pam are avid travelers who audit classes in history, political science, philosophy and economics.

The PSU Foundation supports Portland State University's mission to be a leading public urban university. Make a gift or contact us for more information.
