Planned and Leadership Giving
Put your donation to work today or make plans to impact the college after your lifetime. Leadership gifts to Concordia leave a legacy that strengthens the college and the transformational experiences that equip both current and future students for lives of influence and service.
There are several gift arrangements that will help you make a long and lasting impact at Concordia. Whether you would like to put your donation to work today or after your lifetime, you can find a charitable plan that helps you provide for your family and support Concordia College.
Annual Leadership Giving
Join one of our giving societies with your leadership gift. The C-400, Firm Foundation, and Legacy Scholarship Leadership Giving Societies directly influence the lives of students by financially supporting scholarships and important college initiatives.
The Cobber Fund acknowledges and honors those who make leadership gifts during the fiscal year (May 1 - April 30).
Donors are recognized annually at the following cumulative giving levels:
C-400 ($1,250) and Firm Foundation Giving Societies ($2,500)
Since 1955, the C-400 Leadership Giving Society has served as the pioneering annual fund program. C-400 continuously transforms to fit the needs of the college. Both the C-400 and Firm Foundation Societies are integral in funding student scholarships and fueling the transformational learning experiences that are hallmarks of a Concordia education.
Legacy Scholarship Giving Society ($5,000)
The Legacy Scholarship Society supports and upholds Concordia's first priority: our students. With each $5,000 gift, a specific student is impacted by your vital financial support. Gifts to the Legacy Scholarship Society are used only for scholarships, and awards are based on need and scholastic achievement.
Your endowed scholarship gifts are invested by Concordia and the spendable investment income is awarded to a selected student. The principal remains intact, providing ongoing scholarship funds. To establish an endowed scholarship, a minimum of $30,000 is required. Choose to fund the entire endowment at once or make payments over a period of three to five years. Contact us for more information.
Named Scholarships or Awards
Named scholarships, also known as restricted scholarships, are funded annually. This amount is then awarded to a selected student on an annual basis. To establish a restricted named scholarship, there is a minimum commitment of $5,000 per year.
