Augustana College announced Wednesday that major fundraising milestones have been met for the Peter J. Lindberg, M.D., Center for Health and Human Performance project:
- Prior to the Austin E. Knowlton Foundations commitment to the project, the college had received commitments of $1 million
- In response, the Austin E. Knowlton Foundation provided lead gift of $8 million
- The Austin E. Knowlton Foundation provided $1 million in a challenge grant
- Donors matched the foundation’s challenge with another $1 million, which was just completed last month
With nearly $12 million of the $19 million funded through philanthropy, the additional $6 to $7 million will come from funds reserved over the years to support capital projects and continued fundraising and other forms of support from grants.
