Here at Augustana, tuition covers only about 65 percent of the actual cost of educating each student. Our amazing donors generously cover the rest. Thank you, donors. We love you!

To share the love, the College, in partnership with student Advancement Ambassadors, participated in a Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day event called Love a Donor: a two-day marathon of thank-you-note writing February 5 and 6 on campus. These notes were mailed to donors in time for Valentine’s Day.

Who invests in Augustana besides students?

Thousands of people! Alumni, parents, faculty, staff and people with no other connection to Augustana but a shared value in the education we provide (we affectionately call them our “friends”). Even corporations and foundations see supporting Augustana as a valuable investment.

What a great reason to celebrate! 

Love a Donor actively engages the Augustana community in philanthropic education, fosters appreciation for financial support for the College and expresses that appreciation to Augustana donors who are making an investment in the lives of Augustana students.
