Augsburg Alumna Tessa Flynn '05The Augsburg Fund (Annual Giving)

The Augsburg Fund is an umbrella that encompasses all unrestricted annual giving to the college. This includes gifts to The Augsburg Fund, Senior Class Gift, and Maroon & Silver Society. These unrestricted gifts to The Augsburg Fund help meet the crucial current needs of the College including scholarships, curriculum development, student-oriented activities, and technology. Gifts from alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff are the lifeblood of The Augsburg Fund. Augsburg operates on a fiscal year that runs from June 1 through May 31 and unrestricted gifts made during this time go to the area of greatest need. Scholarships, campus-wide technology and safety improvements, enrichment programs, and curriculum development are just a few examples of how unrestricted annual giving impacts the lives of students at Augsburg.

Specific Needs

All undesignated, unrestricted gifts go to the Augsburg Fund. However, your gift can be designated to benefit a specific need at Augsburg. Perhaps you would like to give directly to the Reichenbach International Student Scholarship, or the Center for Global Education, or Athletics.
