Your Legacy and Concordia: Partnering for Tomorrow
Establishing a planned gift with Concordia is a decision to share of yourself, to demonstrate your values, and to believe in the power of generosity.
Today, as you plan to leave your legacy, we invite you to explore the impact you can make at Concordia University Chicago. With your planned gift, the University will be pleased to welcome you into the Addison Society.
Join the Addison Society
The Addison Society was founded in 1990 to recognize individuals and families who have thoughtfully and generously included a gift to Concordia University Chicago in their will, or through another planned gift arrangement. Today, more than 350 families representing University alumni and friends are members of the Addison Society. These loyal individuals uphold the high standards and traditions of the past, while serving as partners in Concordia's plans for the future. Addison Society members will forever benefit generations of students.
Membership in the Addison Society is bestowed when a donor creates one or more of the following gift plans:
- Bequest under a Will or Living Trust
- Gift Annuity
- Charitable Remainder Trust
- Life Insurance policy or beneficiary designation
- Beneficiary Designations from retirement and other accounts

For the various advantages that exist with each gift option, please review our planned giving fact sheet. An initial inquiry may be made with Debbie Hoover, Director of Planned Giving at (708) 209-3155 or Debbie.Hoover@cuchicago.edu.
A warm welcome awaits you as a member of our Addison Society family.
