Frequently asked questions

How is my monthly donation used?

Your contribution can be designated in any way you wish, but our greatest need is to the Concordia Fund. The Concordia Fund supports scholarships and day-to-day operations of the university. Find out more about the Concordia Fund here.

What amount enables me to become a Concordia GEM?

Any monthly contribution qualifies you to be a “Concordia GEM” (give every month). To help us apply your support in the most cost-effective manner, we recommend a minimum commitment of $20 per month. Even more important than the size of your donation is the commitment you are making to providing regular support each month. Whether it’s $20 or $50 (or more) per month, you can rest assured knowing that you are supporting our uncommon students and programs through a flexible and cost-efficient method of donation.

What are my payment options?

The most cost-effective way to become a Concordia GEM is by using our online form to setup pre-authorized payments from you credit card. Pre-authorized payments make monthly donations easier by eliminating the need for postage, monthly checks and reminder letters.

What do I do if I want to change my giving amount?

Your monthly contribution can be adjusted or cancelled at any time (within 10 days of the next scheduled transaction). Simply contact Trina Searcy, Gift and Data Assistant, at Trina.Searcy@cuw.edu or (262) 243-4423.

When will I receive my tax receipt?

Monthly donors receive one official charitable tax receipt in January (in time to prepare your taxes) for the total amount of your donations for the previous year. If you have misplaced your tax receipt or have any inquiries about receipting, please contact our office.
