About

Welcome to Blue, Gold and Bold: A 48-hour Giving Challenge

We want to inspire 2,500 donors to give during this challenge—one for each of our 2,500 students.   

When college rankings are calculated, the percentage of alumni who donate to their alma mater matters. For example, U.S. News weights rankings by 5% on alumni giving.

For every dollar you give, that dollar will be doubled*—matched by the Double-Your-Dollars Donor Team. Our goal is to reach $250,000 during these 48 hours, for a total of $500,000 of support for our students and faculty. 

Every dollar you give can support a student’s passionate curiosity, leading to that student’s best success. And the world needs the passion of our graduates today, every day, and into the future.

What our graduates can give to the world begins with you and your passionate generosity.

Give to the area of your choosing, or support one of five areas we’re highlighting for this campaign: Atheltics; Financial Aid; Bergendoff Renovations; Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; or Academic Excellence. Every dollar given to one of our focus areas counts in the overall campaign totals. Click on each tile above to learn more!

*All matching funds will be directed to the Augustana Fund, supporting all 2,500 students every day.

Socks!
