Spring Outreach
A Message from Bob Preloger, Vice President for Advancement

In an effort to keep you informed with news and updates regarding our fundraising and outreach initiatives, I’d like to use this opportunity to share the following information:

  • The Advancement Office continues to work hard on planning the 2013 Scholarship Luncheon, an important event that brings together donors of endowed and annual scholarships and the students who are benefactors of their gifts. This year’s luncheon is set for Sunday, April 21, and will feature a celebration of the philanthropic philosophy of our alumni and friends who support nearly 600 scholarships – life-changing, transformational gifts that help some of the world’s most talented, creative and innovative young people achieve their full potential as students in preparation for lives as global citizens.
  • Three significant Augustana Fund mailings are set for distribution in the coming weeks. One is an appeal from Dr. Susan Hasseler, senior vice president and dean of the College. The remaining two communications are appeals to parents: those whose children are freshman, sophomores and juniors; and those whose children are graduating in May.
  • The winter/spring 2013 issue of The Augustana, the magazine for alumni and friends of the College, will be arriving in mailboxes later this week. In this issue, we recognize those who are using their God-given gifts to stir the hearts and empower the minds of others through scientific research and the performing, visual and literary arts — and, in doing so, are building the connections our world needs to develop ideas, find solutions and experience joy.
  • Finally, as of Monday, March 18, we have raised $462,368 in support of the Augustana Fund for FY 2012-13.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding our fundraising and outreach efforts. Thank you for your continued support.

Yours, for Augustana,

Bob Preloger
VP for Advancement
