The Tassel Challenge celebrates Augsburg University's 2018 graduating class. You can honor an Auggie graduate by donating to the Tassel Challenge. All money raised will go to the Sesquicentennial Scholarship Fund, and be used to help future Auggies.

To celebrate 2018 graduates, a generous donor has offered a $10,000 match. All gifts from now through the May 2nd end date will be matched dollar for dollar! Our goal is to raise enough money for scholarships to utilize all $10,000 of this match.

If you make a gift in honor of a graduating student, we will also send you and them a Augsburg Tassel keychain as a keepsake.

Make your gift. Challenge your friends. Talk about it on social media. Let's show how much the Augsburg community gives back.

Thank You for Helping Us Reach Our Tassel Challenge Goal

A huge thank you to everyone who donated for making our first Tassel Challenge an enormous success!

We raised $12,625 during the Tassel Challenge in honor of 2018 graduates. This means we fully utilized our $10,000 match, and raised $22,625 for the Sesquicentennial Scholarship fund! 

We are deeply grateful to everyone who have supported this years graduates throughout their lives. Your generosity makes it possible for Augsburg to educate students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders. Augsburg students are aware of the many ways you and donors like you enhance their educational experience and provide financial support for scholarships, programs, professorships, and more.

Thank you for this contribution and for your ongoing engagement in the work of Augsburg University. If you have any questions about the Tassel Challenge, please contact Chris Bogen '09 at
