Reunion Campaign

Gift Amount

Make a gift in support of Luther students during your anniversary reunion!

At Luther, learning happens everywhere: in the classroom, in the fields and rivers surrounding campus, in operating rooms at the nation’s top hospitals, and even along cobbled streets of European cities.

When you support Luther, you support the educational foundation, relationships, and experiences students need to lead courageously for a lifetime of impact. 

Thank you, Class of 1970! You continue to make an immediate and lasting impact on Luther students!

It's easy to make a commitment! Here are several ways to get started:

  • Give online
  • Send a check to Luther College Development Office  |  Loyalty Hall  |  700 College Drive  |  Decorah, IA 52101
  • Give us a call! 800.225.8664
  • Did you know that you can also make an IRA Charitable Rollover gift AND receive tax benefits? Because Luther is a qualified nonprofit, there is no federal tax paid on the transfer. All or part of your required minimum distribution may be met and the money goes straight to work toward our mission.
  • Planned gifts also count for the reunion! Simply share the estimated value (if not already received) and the full amount will be counted in your 50-year reunion campaign!

Reunion Campaign Priorities

The Luther Fund
Donations to the Luther Fund have a hand in just about everything students need: scholarships and financial aid, field study trips, music tours, student organizations, volunteer opportunities in the community, college ministries, residence hall improvements, campus landscaping, building maintenance, intramural sports, student/faculty research (you get it, the list goes on and on). So when you donate to the Luther Fund, you’re supporting students. It's that simple.

Class of 1970 Scholarship
In honor of our reunion, a fund was established to endow a class scholarship. Now more than ever, philanthropic support to Luther is critical as students strive to meet the rising cost of education. This legacy scholarship will be held in perpetuity and provides an opportunity for you to invest in the lives of students now and in the future.
