Annual Giving

The Augustana Fund

Three students studying

The three main drivers of our annual budget are tuition and fees, endowment draw and the Augustana Fund.

Each year the $2 million to $2.5 million raised for the Augustana Fund bolsters our strategic initiatives, strengthens our programs and promotes the success of our 2,500 students.

These funds come in big and small gifts from alumni, friends and parents. They are especially important because they are flexible, allowing us to respond to unexpected challenges and to new opportunities that create an outstanding academic environment and vibrant college life.
