Honor a Loved One and Support Concordia
Memorial and tribute gifts are a meaningful way to recognize special occasions and special people. Whether a joyous event or in memory of a loved one, this is an opportune way to express gratitude towards someone who has had a significant impact on your life, while, in turn, making an investment in the life of a Concordia student.
A tribute gift is often given to honor a special occasion, such as a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or notable achievement.
Pave the Way for the Future
Just outside the George R. White Library & Learning Center is a pathway that welcomes future generations of students, neighbors and visitors to the heart of campus. You can make a permanent tribute to a person or organization by purchasing a brick on Concordia Legacy Pathway. Parents, honor your graduate; alumni, salute a special teacher; remember someone who made an impact or thank a community partner.
Each brick contains up to three lines, 17 characters per line (including spaces and punctuation.) Language is limited to names, dates and tribute words such as “in honor of” or “in memory of”. Websites or advertising messages are not allowed and the Concordia University Foundation reserves the right to edit text where necessary.
Each brick costs $200 and the cost is 100% tax deductible. New bricks are engraved on the Concordia Legacy Pathway each summer. Bricks purchased between July 1 and June 30 will be finished by the end of August each year.
How to Make a Tribute or Memorial Gift
Memorial and tribute gifts, like all donations given to Concordia University, can be made online, by mail, or over the phone. Please include your name and address, as well as the name and address of the person(s) in whose name you are making the gift. The amount of the gift will be kept confidential. Thank you for your support of our mission and our students, as together, we prepare leaders for the transformation of society.
