Giving To Concordia


Supporting the next 150 years at Concordia-Chicago

Since 1864, faculty and staff have been given the opportunity to impart the notion of vocation to our students, preparing them as servant leaders for a special purpose. At the same time, we have become uniquely aware that faculty and staff alone could not achieve the mission of the University. 

In this mission, EVERY SINGLE PERSON who gives of their time, opens doors to the community, prays for the University, and makes gifts of support dramatically shapes the future of our students and our alumni.  The generosity of individuals, the community, businesses, and foundations creates significant opportunities for those who come to us believing that Concordia-Chicago will open doors, fulfill hopes and dreams, and guide them toward a meaningful life.

For these reasons, we thank you for your generosity and for making a very special difference in the lives of others!

Alumni Relations

The mission of the Office of Alumni Relations is to help connect Cougars to one another and to their alma mater - wherever they serve and lead. The unlimited reach of the Internet helps make this possible as a dynamic resource for our graduates.
