The "Build. Grow. Inspire." Campaign
Build. Grow. Inspire. is a comprehensive campaign that will enable Concordia to better prepare leaders for service. Our world greatly needs the contributions of faith-centered, values-based and academically advanced higher education graduates.
BUILD...excellence through campus enhancements
Improvements to Kretzmann Hall are vital to the continued success of Concordia’s rich tradition of excellence in the fine arts. The project will include the construction of a small performance venue, as well as improvements to rehearsal, practice, arts and theater spaces.
GROW...the University endowment
To secure the University’s ongoing fulfillment of its mission, Concordia will continue to grow student scholarships, special program and operational endowments, and academic and non-academic chairs.
INSPIRE...through the sustaining fund
It’s all about the students and the university’s ability to deliver an extraordinary learning experience each day. Student aid, new technology, educational innovation and student life services and activities ensure that quality education can be sustained.
Thank you for considering a gift to the Build. Grow. Inspire. campaign!
