Support the Sem on Give STL Day

Local and nationwide supporters of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis have a special opportunity to help further the Seminary’s vital mission of preparing the church’s future church workers during the annual Give STL Day event May 9.

Give STL Day is an online 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 $50,000 in support of its mission to prepare the church’s future pastors, deaconesses, missionaries, teachers and other church leaders to go out from St. Louis across the globe to shine the light of the Gospel.

Thanks to a special matching opportunity, donations to this year’s Give STL Day campaign will be doubled dollar for dollar up to the first $25,000 raised.

“This special campaign is a wonderful way for friends and supporters – both near and far – to join in Concordia Seminary’s mission and help prepare the next generation of church leaders,” said Vicki Biggs, senior vice president of Seminary Advancement and chief communications officer. “The matching opportunity makes Give STL Day extra special, because a gift to this campaign can be doubled for impact – a donor’s gift can go twice as far during this special campaign. Everyone is invited to participate in this special giving opportunity and help to ensure that our congregations and other ministries will be served by wonderfully prepared shepherds for generations to come!”

Early giving will begin April 24. Donations can be made online at or by calling 800-822-5287.

Friends and supporters also can help by spreading the word on social media using the hashtags #GiveSTLDay and #SupportTheSem.

“Our students, faculty and staff are deeply grateful to our donors,” added Karla Meyer, director of annual giving and the Seminary’s Give STL Day campaign manager. “It is a joy to see the body of Christ joining together to support our future pastors, deaconesses and missionaries.”
