Concordia Lutheran Seminary

Why Give?

Dedicated, educated, theologically well-grounded pastors, ministers, missionaries, and Christian workers with the tools for on-going spiritual formation are essential in our world. The grateful donors respond to God’s work in their lives and direct resources to where they will have potentially powerful impact on God’s work in the world.

The world desperately needs to hear the revelation of the work of God through Jesus Christ in Word and Sacrament. Church workers need to be prepared to correctly distinguish Law and Gospel. People who are called to ministry need to be nurtured and their gifts of leadership need to be strengthened. Seminarians often come to Seminary with great sacrifice. By responding to God's call they often uproot families, leave careers, and bring along accrued debt from undergraduate study. Your support aids students and can help ease the financial burden ensuring that no student has to leave seminary or postpone enrollment for financial reasons.

Gifts from concerned and dedicated people like you have made possible the work of the Seminary. Through on-going gifts of money, endowment seed funds, planned giving, in-kind donations, and volunteer time you equip and tangibly support talented, caring people to heed the call to serve in proclaiming God’s Word.

On-going gifts include cash gifts, matching gifts, real estate gifts, and gifts in kind

Endowment seed funds are given to establish a capital fund which will provide an on-going source of income for the Seminary.

Planned giving allows donors the opportunity to direct portions of their estate for the benefit of the Seminary.
