Concordia Seminary, St. Louis friends and supporters are invited to help prepare pastors, deaconesses and other church workers through online gifts on the international day of philanthropy known as Giving Tuesday, Nov. 27. Gifts donated during the Seminary’s Giving Tuesday campaign will benefit student financial aid.
Donors will be able to double their Giving Tuesday gifts this year thanks to a matching gift of $25,000. Gifts will be matched, dollar for dollar up to $25,000.
