1973 50yr Reunion

Thanks to the generosity of your classmates, your gifts to the Luther Fund will go twice as far! Every gift from a member of the Class of 1973 to the Luther Fund will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $73,000. Both outright gifts and multi-year pledges (up to five years) given to the Luther Fund will activate matching funds.

Your gift will make an immediate difference on campus supporting students involved in meaningful research projects, life-changing study abroad programs, community-building student groups on campus, and so much more.

Give online today and note “1973 Match” in the comments.
