Senior Giving Campaign

Gift Amount

Students Now. Alumni Forever.

Attention Seniors! Are you ready to make your Luther pledge and join the members of your class in showing gratitude for your Luther experience? Gifts make a difference for all of campus when you pledge with the Class of 2016 to the Senior Giving Campaign. Join together to give back!

What is the Senior Giving Campaign?

Through the Senior Giving Campaign (SGC), you are invited to make a pledge—as a way to say thank you for the experiences you've had and as an investment in the future of Luther College. As a project of the Annual Fund, your SGC pledge combines with pledges from the rest of the Class of 2016 and helps Luther further offset the cost of attendance for 100 percent of current students. That's right! Because of the Class of 2016, every student on campus experiences offset costs!

Your pledge—along with the challenge gifts from the senior giving campaign sponsors—will strengthen all aspects of campus life and enrich the experiences of current and future Luther students. Say thank you and place your vote of confidence in future Luther students today!

How can I participate?

Pledging begins now! Your monthly, quarterly or yearly pledge will last for three years.
When you've completed your pledge you will be one of many young alumni who give back to Luther! Don't forget—donations beyond your three year pledge are important to Luther as well.

Your yearly participation counts! Each year those who donate to the Annual Fund are "counted" to find out our Alumni Participation Rates. The stronger our rates, the more competitive we are when applying for funding from foundations and corporations. These rates also help our rankings on US News and World Report.

It's not about if you give a little or give a lot, it's about giving something!

What happens once I pledge?

We'll send you a confirmation in the mail. Remember: You don't have to make any gifts toward your pledge goal until March 2017—almost an entire year after you graduate!

As your pledge is added to the pledges of your fellow classmates we will reach higher and higher participation and giving rates! Let's make this year count and surpass the Class of 2015!

If you have any questions related to your Senior Giving Campaign pledge, please contact James Odegaard at or by calling 563.387.1522.

Thank you for your support, seniors!
