Donors who contribute $1,000 or more to the Fund each year are recognized in the Maroon and Silver Society for donating more than 65% of The Augsburg Fund dollars each year.

Graduate HugGifts to the Augsburg Fund provide Augsburg with unrestricted, discretionary dollars to improve the student experience by making annual strategic investments in operations, academic programs, technologies and more. Generous contributions allow Augsburg to deploy resources as needs and opportunities arise. In a given year, the Augsburg Fund may support campus-wide technology upgrades, such as wider WiFi capability, safety or accessibility improvements, and new curriculum development, such as experiential learning and the inaugural River Semester in 2015, in which 16 students traveled the length of the Mississippi River from Minneapolis to New Orleans by canoe, bus, boat, and train in a unique, low-carbon off-campus learning expedition.
