The Concordia Fund
The Concordia Fund is critical to Concordia University's ability to make quality Christian education affordable for all families. Your gift will directly support Concordia students by providing scholarships and financial aid, which continue to remain a top university priority. More than 98% of Concordia students require financial aid, and it is your thoughtful and generous support that makes the impossible dream of attending college a reality.
Your support has allowed me to concentrate more on schoolwork and less on worrying about finances. I hope one day I will be able to make the kind of difference in someone’s life that your gift has made in mine.

By choosing to invest in the life of Concordia University students, your gift will also have a significant impact on our world. Concordia provides a rigorous academic experience for students and strives to incorporate service-oriented opportunities into all areas of learning, which provides a platform for our students to immediately make a difference. They learn to use critical thinking skills and make ethical decisions in the context of a Lutheran Christian education. As they seek to be leaders in their field, Concordia University students will not only transform the world of the future, but they are improving their communities today.
In 2010, Washington Monthly Magazine ranked Concordia University as the top "master's level" university in the nation for student community service with students contributing more than 223,000 hours of practicum, internship, and service learning hours per year, serving more than 10,000 community members, 5,000 of whom were youth. By supporting a Concordia University student, you are also helping to transform society.
Each year, thousands of Concordia University alumni, parents, friends, and community partners join forces with us to give the gift of education, an investment that lasts a lifetime. Please join with us and help make a difference today.
