Help Fund the Class of 1969 Scholarship Endowment

gifts and pledges as of 8/7

Class of 1969 leaders would like to take this golden opportunity to support the alma mater that brought us together. Concordia continues to prepare students with excellence and integrity to share their Christian faith. The Connecting Team believes it is important to continue this legacy and ensure the next generation of singers have a similar Concordia experience.

In honor of the 50th Anniversary, we challenge classmates to help fully-fund the Class of 1969 Scholarship Endowment. By collectively sharing $30,000 (or more), we will help our alma mater provide financial aid to students seeking serve in a Professional Church Worker capacity.

Share your gift during registration. Or contact the Office of Alumni Relations at or call 888-258-6773 for additional information.
