Luminary Society

Every once in a while you may stop to consider the impact your life has on the people around you.  Many people can look at their family and friends and realize that they have had a positive influence.  Still they yearn to do something more, something deeper for others, and something positive that will last beyond their lifetime.

Often our cash resources are limited.  We would like to give more money to our favorite charitable causes, but there simply aren’t enough resources available.  What if you could make a lasting and permanent gift, one that was bigger than you ever dreamed possible?  And what if you could do it in a way that honored and protected your loved ones inheritance at the same time?

If you would like to create this kind of legacy the Luminary Society has been established just for you!  The Luminary Society is designed to recognize and show appreciation for those who have remembered Concordia University Foundation in their future giving and estate plans. Your participation in the Luminary Society helps insure that Concordia continues to be a Christian University preparing leaders for the transformation of society – regardless of their ability to pay.

As partners in our shared mission, your financial legacy through estate planning can generate a solid financial base for the future.

How to Become a Member of Luminary Society:

Becoming a member is simple!  You can call or write Concordia University Foundation to tell them you have included Concordia University as a beneficiary in your estate plan.  When you call or write, please indicate the following:

  1. I am considering becoming a member of Luminary Society.
  2. I have already placed Concordia University Foundation as a beneficiary in my estate plan.
  3. I would like copies of the Estate Planning Guide, Estate Inventory Form, and “My Final Wishes” booklet.

  5. A staff member will be happy to help you!

Luminary Society Members will be honored on a special plaque that hangs in the reception area.  Additionally you will receive a beautifully framed certificate, and be invited as a special guest to our annual luncheon.
