4 ways to support Augsburg athletics

  1. Join A-Club. Enjoy special events, admission to home games, and other rewards.
  2. Make a gift in support of a team. Earn coaches’ appreciation when this donation makes an immediate impact.
  3. Create an endowed fund for a team. A gift of $25,000 or more creates an endowed fund that provides a team ongoing support. Augsburg draws 4.5% of the value of the fund each year and makes it available to coaches for priority needs.
  4. Endow a coaching position. Gifts to endow coaching staff typically begin at $1 million and include naming an existing coaching position. Funds help recruit and retain talent.
