Donor Story

Bob and Carol Friesen

Ensuring the Dream

What’s possible when a family deeply connected to Fresno Pacific endows the future of music and theater? The dream of a performing arts center moves forward!

Bob and Carol Friesen have given much—both attended Pacific Bible Institute. Daughter Tiffany and son Todd and his wife Sarah earned degrees at FPU.

Now they will ensure a long-cherished project benefits generations to come. A musician, Carol sang in choir and traveled with a drama group. A former trustee, Bob knows the hardest money to raise for any building is the endowment.

The university is grateful that, through the sale of rental property, Bob and Carol are funding a charitable remainder unitrust with the foundation. Proceeds will go to the Fresno Pacific University Performing Arts Center Maintenance Endowment.

Planned giving provides you the benefits of tax savings and retirement income while supporting causes you care about.
