Making a difference

Much like the cornerstone of a building marks the beginning of the foundation and sets reference for the rest of the structure, the Concordia Fund plays a key role in fulfilling our mission as a Lutheran higher education community committed to helping students develop in mind, body, and spirit for service to Christ in the Church and the world. We have established the Concordia Cornerstone Society as an effort to raise awareness of the Concordia Fund - unrestricted gifts to help impact the immediate needs of our students.

Join the Concordia Cornerstone Society by making gifts to the Concordia Fund of $1,000 or more each fiscal year (July - June).

What is the Concordia Fund?

Tuition only covers a portion of the actual cost to educate each student. The Concordia Fund was established to offset the remaining expenses, allowing us to offer Concordia’s students the increased quality and experience they deserve, without placing a greater burden on them. Donations to the Concordia Fund support the day-to-day operations of the university, provide scholarship support, and enhance the student experience. This is our GREATEST need.
