Impact Report Celebrates Charitable Giving
Wednesday, January 15, 2014
Augustana has released its 2012-2013 Impact Report, an annual report of the state of the College and an honor roll of those who made gifts during the last fiscal year (August 1, 2012, through July 31, 2013).
"We are honored, humbled and grateful for the generosity of our alumni and friends," said Bob Preloger, vice president for Advancement. "These expressions of 'paying it forward' serve as an example for all of us and our current students, whom we hope will one day help make it possible for the next generation of Augustana students to explore and discover important ideas and concepts in order to create an even better world."
For the fiscal year, there were more than 5,300 investors in Augustana. Year-end total giving to the College was $9.65 million, the second highest on record. As a result, the $120 million Momentum Augustana Campaign, the largest fundraising effort in the history of the College, made significant strides as a result. Since August 1, 2007, nearly $100 million in cash, pledges and deferred gifts had been received by the end of the fiscal year.
