Frequently Asked Questions

How do I renew my membership?

Your membership continues automatically as long as you make an annual gift to the St. Olaf Fund.

What is the timeline for counting gifts?

Gifts will be counted within each fiscal year, which runs from June 1 through May 31.

What happens if I miss giving in a certain year?

Members have the opportunity to rejoin the Loyalty Society through “buying back” giving in the years that were missed, and resuming annual giving.

Is every gift to the St. Olaf counted for the Loyalty Society?

Because the Loyalty Society recognizes the importance of annual support for the annual fund, only gifts to the St. Olaf Fund are included as criteria for membership.

How can I make sure I don’t miss giving every year?

You can give online by making one-time gift, or setting up a monthly giving plan using a credit card, or a checking or savings account.
