Our goal for AUGUSTANA NOW: A Campaign for Success in the World, for the World is $125,000,000.
This campaign is a call to you and our college community to make Augustana a force for real, lasting change in the world.
From now until Dec. 31, 2020, every gift to Augustana College will contribute to this campaign.

In addition to the totals above, on Jan. 12, Augustana announced an $8 million challenge grant from the Austin E. Knowlton Foundation that will help fund new academic programs, expand athletics and build the The Peter J. Lindberg, M.D., Center for Health and Human Performance.
The Augustana Fund: These gifts are especially important because they are flexible, allowing us to respond to unexpected challenges and to new opportunities.
Endowment fund: These gifts build a permanent legacy and resource that makes a difference now and for generations to come.
