Point Loma Nazarene University Update

The top fundraiser for PLNU has resigned in protest of last month's sports cuts. Read more here.

“It troubles me deeply how this was originally handled,” said Daryl Nicholson, a longtime benefactor of PLNU. “We have always kept the student as the No. 1 priority. I don’t think the students’ needs were understood.”

The school is losing not only a top fund-raiser, but also a big-time contributor.

Nicholson Commons on campus is named after Nicholson, who donated $1 million to the $13 million facility. He said he knows of other donors whose donations might be affected by the Title IX decision. However, he said he does not want to hurt the university.
