Memorial giving

Augustana College offers multiple opportunities to commemorate a loved one who passed, whether or not they are an alumnus or just that Augustana held a special place in their heart. 

Endowed scholarships

Scholarships remove financial barriers for students who enroll at Augustana. With a gift to the endowment designated for scholarship, this benefits students in perpetuity. These opportunities start at $25,000 when unrestricted.

About endowment

Commemorative tree

A tree will be planted in memory of your loved one on campus. The tree variety and location will be selected by our facilities team in order to best adhere to the campus master plan. These opportunities start at $5,000.

Pollinator gardens

A pollinator garden can be planted, then named in honor of your loved one, contributing to our campus' ecosystem. These opportunities start at $2,500.

If you have a loved one who recently passed on and you would like to honor their memory in a special way on campus, contact Brinton Vincent, director of donor engagement and stewardship, at or 309-794-7202.
