Concordia Seminary’s vision is to be the world leader in Lutheran formation and scholarship. In our quest to achieve this vision, the endowment of Concordia Seminary will be strengthened through additional gifts, wise investment policies and the careful stewardship of earnings.
Offering an estate or endowment gift to Concordia Seminary will provide blessings not just for this generation, but also for generations to come.Endowment and estate gifts may address a number of priorities, including:
“The future of our church and how it’s funded is changing. Longtime Seminary donor Marilynn Peters believes endowed giving will be crucial.
“As I talked to members of my family and my congregation, there were people who wanted to give to the future of our church. Rather than ‘spent and gone,’ they value a ‘stays and works’ approach. An endowment fund is perfect, but can be hard to start.
“I thought, ‘What if there was an endowment fund that allowed more people to give?’ There’s an old saying, ‘Many hands make light work.’ I started the Helping Hands Operational Endowment to enable people to give endowed gifts at any level. This operational endowment allows funds to be used where most needed to support the working needs of the Seminary.”
