Campaign goal:         $125,000,000
Total gifts as of Feb. 29, 2020: $114,516,029
Number of gifts            72,525

In addition to the totals above, on January 12, Augustana announced an $8 million challenge grant from the Austin E. Knowlton Foundation that will help fund new academic programs, expand athletics and build the Austin E. Knowlton Center for Innovation in Health Wellness and Human Performance.

The Augustana Fund: These gifts are especially important because they are flexible, allowing us to respond to unexpected challenges and to new opportunities.

Capital projects: These projects include the expansion of Hanson Hall of Science, the renovation of the Bergendoff Hall of Fine Arts, and the renovation and expansion of the Betsey Brodahl Building.

Endowment fund: These gifts build a permanent legacy and resource that makes a difference now and for generations to come.
