In the past, you may have attended the “GO Gala” or “A Taste for All.” This year, in lieu of an event, we are announcing “@Home for Concordia.” Don’t get dressed up. Don’t hire a baby sitter. Don’t look for parking or ride share. There isn’t even a date! It’s a “No Go” Gala! Just stay “@Home for Concordia.”
While it may sound cliché, it couldn’t be more true: Now more than ever, we need your support.
Concordia needs to be there for our children and families. Concordia Early Childhood programs are in-person with rigorous health and safety protocols. School-Age 365 now has full-day, in-person e-learning support for children of working parents. Teen Leadership instructors engage with teens virtually across Chicago at a time when relationships and connections are so vital.
But this requires additional:
This adds up to more than $50,000 a year; $12,000 a month in extra personnel and $1,400 a week for supplies. For our children’s programs, this breaks down to $150 per child a year.
Won’t you join us “@Home” for Concordia and help continue the growth and opportunity for hundreds of young children, youth, teens and their families—all from the comfort of your home.
We’re glad to
