Annual and Gratitude Reports

Annual Report


Gifts made to Augustana provide access for generations of students to come. View the 2019-20 Augustana University Annual Report.

As you’ll read in these pages, private gifts are making a difference across campus. Our stories include a family who gave a gift to name an office in the Fryxell Humanities Center after their mother on her would-be 100th birthday this year; a first-generation Kurdish woman who wants to make an impact on students like her; and a family who loved music so much they gifted a complete renovation of a music hall on campus.

We hope you’ll enjoy reading about some of the remarkable people behind these numbers — and we thank you for being part of the bold future that’s unfolding now at Augustana University.

The University Celebrates Your Generosity

In the 2019-20 Gratitude Report, we celebrate the generosity of our many alumni and friends who invested in Augustana through their charitable giving during the 2018-19 fiscal year between Aug. 1, 2018, and July 31, 2019.


Your efforts to “pay it forward” will live on for generations through countless students who will come to the place for possibilities to create an even better world tomorrow.

Thank you! We hope you will continue to invest in Augustana.
