What is the Alumni Reunion Challenge?
In 2010-2011, 16% of Augustana’s alums supported the college through an annual gift to the Augustana Fund. A challenge has been issued to all reunion classes to at least double their prior year giving participation.

What are the participation rates for all of the reunion class years?

(as of 07/30/2012)

Why should I give to Augustana?

Most alumni say that whether in the classroom, on the field, or in a full assembly, Augie was a pivotal experience that provided the foundation for their success in college and beyond. Just as annual gifts supported your education while you were at Augustana, your gift will ensure that the Augustana experience will carry on.

Where does my gift go?

Gifts to the Alumni Reunion Challenge support the Augustana Fund. These gifts not only fund scholarships, they also support the ongoing operation of Augustana, positively impacting every aspect of academic and student life. At the heart of annual giving, the Augustana Fund ensures a critical margin of support for educational costs not funded through tuition. Augustana Fund gifts help students today!

If my spouse and I are both alumni from different class years, which class receives credit?

Both! Any gift provided will be attributed to both of the alum's class years.

Rise to the challenge!

Any gift received between August 1, 2011 and July 31, 2012 will count toward your total class participation percentage. There's never been a better time to participate! GIVE NOW to the Augustana Fund.
