These annual gifts are referred to as ‘gifts to live by’ because they are essential to the ever-evolving life of the college. The Concordia Annual Fund helps Concordia change the lives of young people, enabling them to influence the world in positive and thoughtful ways.
The Concordia Annual Fund staff can answer any questions you might have about making a gift or how your support impacts the lives of students today. You may be able to increase your gift through matching donations. Many companies match charitable donations, and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans also has a charitable grant program (Thrivent Choice).
The pioneering annual fund program, C-400, began more than 50 years ago as means to raise money for major projects on campus through one-time gifts. Today, the program continues to uphold the overall mission of the college through annual giving at various levels.
