Augustana Chaplaincy exists because of a unique and historic partnership between the University of Alberta, Augustana Campus, and the Church (expressed through the Synod of Alberta and the Territories of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada). Because of this partnership, Chaplaincy provides non-sectarian services to the entire campus community supporting the liberal arts mission of fostering personal wholeness and provides a place of Christian worship, service, pastoral care and community.
Under the terms of this partnership, the Augustana Campus funds the two thirds, non-sectarian portion of the Chaplaincy Program. The Augustana Chaplaincy Council raises funds for the work of ministry.
The ministry is supported by gifts to the Augustana Chaplaincy Annual Fund with a goal of $50,000 per year which covers the day-to-day expenses of Chaplaincy. Income is also generated by the Augustana Chaplaincy Endowment Fund. Our goal is to grow the Endowment Fund to $1,000,000 in order to support the work of Chaplaincy and the heritage of the Church at Augustana in perpetuity. One time gifts of any size are welcome to the Endowment Fund. If you would like to make a planned gift or would like to learn more about the Endowment Fund, please contact the Augustana Development office at 780-678-1558.
Augustana Chaplaincy is a renewed, reinvigorated and vital element of the Augustana experience we all treasure. If you would like to make a gift to Augustana Chaplaincy, you may do so either online through the link below or by printing out and mailing in the Giving Form.
