Local and nationwide supporters of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis have a special opportunity to help further the Seminary’s vital mission during the annual Give STL Day event May 5. Now in its ninth year, Give STL Day is an online, one-day giving event organized by the St. Louis Community Foundation for the benefit of nonprofits headquartered in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
The Seminary’s goal for Give STL Day is to raise $25,000 in support of its mission to prepare the church’s future pastors, deaconesses, missionaries, teachers and other church leaders. With the help of local and nationwide friends, the Seminary’s graduates go out from St. Louis across the world to shine the light of the Gospel.
Thanks to a generous donor, donations to this year’s Give STL Day campaign will be doubled dollar for dollar up to the first $12,000 raised.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to be part of this campaign that highlights locally headquartered nonprofit organizations and excited to invite our friends and supporters to remember the vital mission of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis during this special time,” said Vicki Biggs, senior vice president of Seminary Advancement and chief communications officer. “Because of the matching gift opportunity, this is an extra-special opportunity to double your support for the mission of the Seminary and help ensure that the servants are being prepared who will go on to share the Gospel with future generations!"
Online donations can be made beginning April 5 at givestlday.org/concordiasem or 800-822-5287. Individuals also can show their support for the Seminary by spreading the word on social media using the hashtags #GiveSTLDay and #SupportTheSem.
“Give STL Day is a great opportunity for supporters near and far to share their blessings and help prepare those called to do God’s work,” added Megan Duncan, manager of annual giving and Give STL Day campaign manager.
