As you consider joining your colleagues in making a charitable gift to the University, please take a moment to learn why other faculty and staff support Concordia University. Their stories are inspiring.
"It is a privilege to give back financially to Concordia University because CUI is so much more than my workplace. It is a place of ministry where God's word is taught, spoken and shown to so many constituencies. Students, faculty, staff, the residents inside our gates, the Irvine community and those far beyond benefit and are blessed by what takes place on a daily basis here at the campus. It is also beneficial to our advancement staff as they pursue corporate donors and grants from foundations, as those organizations want to know how many CUI faculty and staff are giving back as they consider gifts to the institution. Finally, giving is so EASY!!! By giving through payroll deduction I don't even miss the funds and the amount I give is 100% tax deductible. For those of you who have yet to join the group of faculty and staff who donate through payroll deduction, the amount of the gift is not that important. It is the fact that you are supporting the effort of our advancement team that is such and encouragement." - Doug Wible
Blessings to all as you consider this step of your tenure at CUI.

"I am a donor to Concordia Irvine because I get the privilege of watching the mission and vision of the university play out in the lives of students. It is amazing to see how students develop their faith as they participate in the mission trips and opportunities on campus for leadership and ministry. I feel blessed that I get to be a part of a place that encourages me to share my faith in Christ and so by donating I can help make sure these opportunities continue for future students."

"We give so that there are grace-filled professional church workers for the future. We give so that there are excellently prepared men and women living out their vocations as followers of Jesus Christ. We give because there is joy in being part of something bigger than ourselves!"
- Rev. Dr. Mike & Kathy Gibson
"We give to CUI because we truly have been blessed to be a blessing. In addition to giving to our church, my wife and I see giving to Concordia as a vital role we play as believers and ambassadors of the gospel. We have seen the practical use of this giving not just in students across campus, but in how their lives have been changed for the Kingdom because of their experience here at Concordia. We look forward to giving back on Giving Day and seeing how God continues to overflow his blessings upon the Concordia family!"
