Great Commission Society
Creating legacies that will make a difference.
The Great Commission is the central theme in Concordia University's mission statement: Concordia University-Irvine, guided by the Great Commission of Christ Jesus and the Lutheran Confessions, empowers students through the liberal arts and professional studies for lives of learning, service and leadership.
To successfully carry out this God-pleasing task, Concordia relies on its family of donors, who unselfishly provide financial gifts every year. The Great Commission Society was founded to honor individuals and families who have remembered Concordia through "planned gifts," referring to bequests designated in wills and living trusts, and to gifts such as charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities that provide lifetime income for donors that can be used by Concordia at a later date.
By giving a planned gift, donors establish a legacy of sending Christ-centered graduates into the world for generations to come. For this reason, Concordia University holds the members of the Great Commission Society in great honor and prestige.
More detail and examples of estate gifts can be found on the Planned Gifts website.
