$2 million gift helps launch residence hall renovation project

A $2 million lead gift commitment from alumni Jack and Sarah Salzwedel has inspired the Wartburg College Board of Regents to authorize a $9 million fundraising campaign to renovate Centennial and Vollmer halls, two of the oldest student residences on campus. The total cost of the renovation, including an addition to the complex’s northeast side, is estimated to be $11 million. The college will also apply for $2 million in State of Iowa Historical Tax Credits.

The college hopes to raise the full $9 million, the largest fundraising goal for a single project in the college’s history, by June 1, 2022. Early leadership gifts have pushed the initial fundraising total to $5 million. If the college can reach the goal, construction could begin next spring and be complete by the time Fall Term classes begin in 2022. Other leadership gift commitments in support of the project include $1.5 million from the Franklin I. & Irene List Saemann Foundation and $1 million from Mike and Marge McCoy.

Dr. Craig Hancock, professor of music and director of bands, and the Wartburg College Concert Bands were awarded a Governor’s Volunteer Award for outstanding commitment and service for their many years of roadside cleanup along Iowa Highway 3. The Governor’s Volunteer Awards Virtual Ceremony, which begins at 10:30 a.m. July 14, can be viewed at this link.
