Campaign Gustavus

Campaign Gustavus is the comprehensive fundraising campaign that will help fund many of the strategic initiatives of Commission Gustavus 150, the College’s strategic planning process. It’s a bold campaign built on three pillars—Opportunity, Teaching & Learning, and Community. Its goal of raising $150 million by the fall of 2015 is the largest and most ambitious in the College’s history.

At its core, the campaign is about people and active engagement in the future of the College. People who believe in creating opportunities for engaged teaching and learning in a nurturing community. People who are passionate about Gustavus and our students.

Join us in the Campaign Gustavus movement and discover the many ways you can make your life and the lives of our students count.
