Gala of Stars event

On April 30, 2022, the friends and supporters of Concordia University Irvine celebrated both in-person and online to help the 20th Annual Gala of Stars reach new heights. When the night was over, more than $650,000 had been raised to support our students through scholarships at Concordia.

We thank our friends and supporters for their generosity! 

At the Gala of Stars, the stars are not actors or athletes: the stars are our STUDENTS. Students who are empowered to live lives of learning, service and leadership. Students guided by the Great Commission of Christ Jesus to be launched into the world as agents of change, knowing that loving God and loving each other are the greatest commandments. Students are only able to follow this direction with your support.

Every student at CUI benefits from the gifts of our donors. There is still time to give to the 20th Annual Gala of Stars Fund-A-Need. Your gift can help us push the event past $700,000! If you would like to contribute, please click the button below.

Concordia Students Shine!

It was a night of incredible performances and heartfelt sharing. Concordia would like to thank our awesome students for their participation.

From the musical performers (both outdoors and in the CU Arena), to the unbelievable student written songs, to the students who helped ensure that the night was flawless, and to our featured speaker, Rebekah Mehrley - we say Thank You!

You are the reason Concordia exists.

Pujols Family Foundation

Concordia congratulates the Pujols Family Foundation on receiving the 2022 Servant Leadership Award! Your work strengthening families living with Down syndrome here at home, and improving the lives of the impoverished in the Dominican Republic, is exceptional. In addition, the outreach to people escaping human trafficking through Open Gate International and Strike Out Slavery are needed now more than ever. We thank God for what has been done and what will be done in and through you and your ministries in the future.
