Support for Aquatic Center - Fully Funded

Join us as we grow our endowment and invest in Luther's most precious resource‒our students, faculty, and staff. During this time of leadership transition, Luther's development efforts remain focused on our student-centered mission. A two-year transitional funding initiative‒Sustaining the Mission‒focuses on growing the Annual Fund and securing support for select program and scholarship endowments. In addition, as new reunion class initiatives for key reunion years are established, an enhanced planned-giving effort has been launched in tandem with the college's ongoing effort to increase alumni participation and support for the Annual Fund.

Luther College is pleased to announce that as of Summer 2013, the new Aquatic Center is fully funded.  Many thanks to the hundreds of donors who supported this key capital priority of The Sesquicentennial Fund.   We invite you to join us on the Friday afternoon of Homecoming, October 4, 2013, at 5:00 p.m. for the dedication of this fabulous new facility.
