Augsburg University is again participating in the annual Give to the Max Day on Thursday, November 15th. Last year, 40+ projects raised $220,000 in funding thanks to donations made during Give to the Max.
If your academic department, athletic team, or student organization has a cause that needs funding, Give to the Max is an excellent way to raise support. Over the last five years Augsburg has raised $1.5 million.
