A Day of Giving Challenge

Steve and Jane Bahls have issued a $1,000 participation challenge. If Augustana receives 50 gifts from alumni from the classes of 2004-2013, Steve and Jane will make an additional gift of $1,000 to the Augustana Fund.


Prizes and incentives will be announced on the Young Alumni Facebook page throughout the day, so check back regularly for updates.

Make a gift and share your support

Join in on the Facebook and Twitter conversation and tell your fellow alumni that you gave! On April 2, use hashtags #Augiegives #loyalviking to tell others that you participated in A Day of Giving.

Did you know...

If you are an Augustana alumna/s married to another Augustana alumnus/a and you make a gift, you and your spouse will both receive credit for the gift. This means your one gift counts for two people!


Why does participation matter?

Your gift to the college, no matter what size, counts as participation. The percent of alumni make a financial gift of any size to the college is a figure used in calculating Augustana's ranking in the U.S. News and World Report. Your support impacts Augustana's ranking, which enhances the value of your degree and helps the college attract high achieving high school students. Your participation also helps Augustana receive funding from corporations and foundations - many grants put emphasis on alumni participation. The higher alumni participation number, the more eligible Augustana is for grant funding.

Why should I support the Augustana Fund?

Gifts to the Augustana Fund make an immediate difference in the lives of current students. Your gift to the Augustana Fund goes to the area of greatest need and supports critical areas such as student scholarships.

I didn't graduate during those years, can I still participate?

Yes! All alumni, parents, and friends are encouraged to show their Viking pride by making a gift to the Augustana Fund today.  Your gift will be included in the total gifts recorded for the day, and you'll be eligible for various prizes and incentives announced throughout the day.

What happens after I make a gift?

After you make your gift online, you will receive an email notification that Augustana received your gift. You will receive a printed receipt in the mail a few days later. If you have questions about your online gift, email or call the Augustana College Office of Advancement, 309-794-7423.
