The Concordia Fund

The Concordia Fund supports student and faculty enrichment and outreach project proposals around a variety of areas in all four divisions that over time benefit all of our students.

Individuals and families who give to the Concordia Fund become Concordia’s next generation of founders, raising the Concordia experience from excellent to exceptional.

 

April Fundraising Campaign

Every year Concordia drives a fundraising effort that enables us to offer exciting enrichment and service projects to our students through the Concordia Fund. This year is no different. Join our Concordia community in helping to elevate the Concordia experience from excellent to exceptional.

2024 Featured Project:
Yunnan Middle School Lighting Project: 

Concordia has been invited to partner with the local government to help improve educational resources at the Yanjin County No. 3 Middle School in Yunnan province.

By replacing outdated fluorescent lamps with LED flat-panel eye protection lamps in classrooms and teachers' offices, the project aims to create a better learning environment for the school’s 4,385 students, addressing the issue of myopia caused by flickering lights.

The first 50,000 RMB raised during the upcoming April 2024 fundraising campaign will go directly to support this project.

Check out the weekly newsletter, The Focus, for more information about projects that the Concordia Fund has sponsored over the past year, and how you can add your support.
