Through their generosity, St. Olaf Fund Leadership Circle members provide flexible operating support critical to helping Oles learn and live on the Hill.
Leadership Circle members provide approximately 50 percent of total dollars given to the St. Olaf Fund each year. In appreciation, St. Olaf provides Leadership Circle members a variety of benefits to share the impact of their contributions and engage them more deeply with the St. Olaf community.
St. Olaf Fund contributors making gifts of $2,500 or more annually are enrolled in the Leadership Circle.
