Personal investment is something that defines Augustana students and graduates. During their years here they engage in the many opportunities that surround them, and are transformed through active participation in the Augustana experience.

Alumni and other friends of the college appreciate the distinctive value of that Augustana experience. When you create an endowment, you build a permanent legacy and resource that makes a difference now and for generations to come. Through philanthropic support of Augustana's endowment you can share an important reward: the personal satisfaction of making an investment in human potential.

"Invest yourselves fully in the Augustana experience. You have sacrificed, your parents have sacrificed and those who have endowed the college have sacrificed to get you here. Develop your imagination. Imagine the possibilities. Invest yourselves well."

— President Steven C. Bahls
