Support Sustain St. Olaf

On November 16-18, 2020, we’re challenging the St. Olaf community to invest in our common future as part of our Support Sustain St. Olaf drive.

The needs of our students can be sudden and unexpected. From COVID-19 support to ongoing research opportunities, scholarships, and more, the St. Olaf Fund supports the complete St. Olaf experience.

By making a monthly gift through the St. Olaf Fund, alumni and supporters of the college can ensure that the next generation of Oles is prepared to weather any challenge and explore their full academic potential. It offers a measure of certainty for our students that, here on the Hill, financial assistance, academic support, and skill-building opportunities will be available when they need it.

The fund has supported financial aid, the Center for Advising and Academic Support, the Piper Center for Vocation and Career, and more. Perhaps even more significantly, however, the fund supports everyday events and campus life. Things such as work study, student organizations, international and off-campus study, the Conversations programs, athletics, wellness, and so much more.

By making a sustaining gift to the St. Olaf Fund, you can ensure the long-term vitality of this community as they experience four life-changing years on the Hill.

Being an Ole means having a supportive community that remains with us for our whole lives. To keep supporting our future peers, leaders, and friends as a sustaining member of this community, visit
