Giving To Concordia


Golden Celebration

Take the 50 Gift Challenge

Golden Alumni have a distinct perspective of the Concordia student experience and its impact through a life of service and vocation. Help preserve this legacy for generations to come!

Alumni leaders have set the goal to secure 50 new gifts of $20,000 or more to help ensure our alma mater’s legacy. Contributions can take many forms whether cash pledge, charitable gift annuity or gift through your estate.

Current initiatives strengthened by your support include:

Improve Student Experience through Mary Martha Renovation Initiative
Ed Trusheim HS ’44, ’48 led the charge to update the former “Women’s Dorm.” Meet his challenge and share a $25,000 gift to upgrade a room with modern amenities.

Support World-Class Music through Beyond Measure
For as little as $100 per month, alumni can share an Immediate Named Scholarship for a student musician in the Kapelle, Wind Symphony or Chamber Orchestra.

Invest in Opportunities to Impact Future Leaders Today
Fund critical needs at the University through an Unrestricted Endowment or provide resources for specific areas of interest.

50 gifts becomes $1 million in new resources for the University when Golden Alumni step up to the challenge. Interested in taking the next step? Contact the office of alumni relations at or 888-258-6773.
