Augustana's Ole covered with snow

Every year, Augustana receives many inquiries from alumni and friends asking how they can make a gift to Augustana before the end of the calendar year.

Please consider these year-end gift processing tips:

  • Your online gifts are the fastest way to support the University with year-end giving. Year-end credit card gifts will only be processed online.
  • Checks received after Friday, Dec. 21, will be processed and receipted according to the postmark on the envelope. If no envelope or postmark is present, the check will be processed for the date it is received.
  • Stock transactions will continue to be processed and receipted according to the date when the shares are transferred into our account. Stock will need to be transferred into our account before 3 p.m. Monday, Dec. 31.
  • If you are a member of Thrivent Financial, you can choose to direct Thrivent Choice Dollars to Augustana University.

Thank you for making your tax-deductible, year-end gift today.
