Your Seminary Needs Your Financial Support

Good quality theological education comes at a cost. Lutheran Church-Canada, our parent body, was founded with two main purposes: missions and seminary education. We are blessed to receive financial support from synod to cover about 20% of our budget. Another 10% or so comes from tuition fees levied on our students. The rest—some 70% of our budget—must be raised through private donations, fund-raising events, and the proceeds of our general endowment fund.

There are many different ways for you to support us:

  • Give immediately to our General Operating needs through PayPal or Canada Helps.
    • Note: you can also set up a recurring monthly donation of $20, $50, or whatever your budget.
  • Donate to the Concordia Seminary Foundation (endowment funds) through PayPal or Canada Helps.
  • Send a cheque in an envelope delivered to you through our regular appeals or whenever you choose.
  • Phone us, ask for the Business Manager, and donate by credit card.
  • Consider a gift of shares or a deferred gift (bequest) with the help of a Gift Co-ordinator from Lutheran Foundation Canada (www.lutheranfoundation.ca).

Remember that your gifts can be directed to many different goals:

  • General operating expenses
  • Student aid
  • Seminary Foundation (general endowment or student endowment fund)
  • A named endowment fund with a restricted purpose

I thank my God every time I remember you, always in my every prayer for you all, … thanking Him for your fellowship in the Gospel from the first day until now, confident of this, that the One who began a good work in you will bring it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Phil. 1:3-6)
