It’s Concordia’s 125th Anniversary! Help celebrate this exciting milestone by making a gift of $125. Once we reach 13 gifts of $125 – representing Concordia’s first class of 13 students – this challenge will be unlocked – providing an additional $1,894 in match dollars, representing Concordia’s founding year, 1894.
