Support the Arts

We've never been more confident in our future for the arts at Augustana than we are right now. Thanks to the hundreds of people who have come to support the arts through their personal gifts, we continue to make huge strides in our offerings, capabilities and performances. We've broken through to new possibilities, and with your help, boundless opportunities lie before us.


"Friends of the Performing and Visual Arts" was begun fifteen years ago to enhance the annual budgets of the art, music and theatre departments. From modest beginnings, we now count more than 400 friends and an impact of over $100,000 annually. These contributions are often spent, and therefore needed, each fiscal year (August 1 - July 31). They represent a flexible, immediate, and essential source of funds for our programs and allow us to be more creative than ever before. As a donor to the fund, you can be assured that each and every dollar is guaranteed to affect students and those who serve them.

Alumni, donors and friends of the arts at Augustana may designate that their gifts of financial support be applied to the overall benefit of the Performing and Visual Arts on the online form. Gifts can also be further designated to be used by a specific area: band, choir, keyboards, orchestra, theatre or visual arts.

You can also support the arts at Augustana with your attendance at concerts, theatre performances and gallery exhibitions. Many events are free and open to the public. Purchase tickets for ticketed events at www.augietickets.com.

We invite you to join us! For questions or further information, simply contact Brad Heegel, Director of PVA Development.

Thank you for your gift and your support!
