Homecoming Week kicked off with the third annual Maroon & Silver Society reception on Tuesday, September 23, in the Arnold Atrium of Hoversten Chapel. The Maroon & Silver Society recognizes donors who give generously to the College’s annual fund, The Augsburg Fund, with gifts of $1,000 or more each year.
Donors at the reception had a chance to hear from several current Augsburg students, who shared their Augsburg experience and how gifts from donors have made a positive difference in their education. Read more about them here.
Membership in the Maroon & Silver Society increased by 27% last fiscal year. The $722,000 these donors gave to The Augsburg Fund represents 64% of the total dollars given.
All new donors at the Maroon & Silver Society level will have their gift matched, dollar-for-dollar, through the Regents’ Challenge! To make your gift visit augsburg.edu/giving.
