AUGUSTANA NOW: A Campaign for Success in the World, for the World

The blue lights on the Old Main dome turned gold New Year's Eve as the college surpassed its $125 million goal for the AUGUSTANA NOW campaign. The total raised in the campaign was announced as $133,662,743. (Read more)

Gifts made through Dec. 31, 2020, were counted in the total. The final tally may change as gifts mailed on that date are counted.

Campaign update

Campaign goal:         $125,000,000
Total as of Dec. 31, 2020: $133,662,743
Number of gifts (approx.)            83,000

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.

Capital projects: These projects include the expansion of Hanson Hall of Science, the renovation of the Bergendoff Hall of Fine Arts, and the renovation and expansion of the Betsey Brodahl Building.

Endowment fund: These gifts build a permanent legacy and resource that makes a difference now and for generations to come.
