Pledge Support

for The Michigan District's Initiative for Concordia University Ann Arbor

The Board of Regents of the University has announced that “Concordia University Ann Arbor will continue its momentum forward for the 2024-2025 academic year and prayerfully beyond.” Academics and co-curriculars, including athletics, will continue for the 2024-2025 year. Per CUWAA’s most recent announcement on June 13, “athletics that can be conducted with adequate roster sizes will continue throughout the upcoming year, including participation in any post-season competitions.”

The Michigan District Board of Directors reviewed the February 29, 2024, resolution passed by the CUWAA Board of Regents and is in general agreement with the principal outcomes reflected in the Resolution. The District will monitor progress toward these outcomes.

The Michigan District Board of Directors retains discretion and control on when and how much of these funds will be contributed to CUAA and reserves the right to not deploy funds if it determines, for any reason, that deployment is not in the best interest of the Michigan District for CUAA. If that is the case, the District will cease funding and apply the balance of funds collected as scholarships for students, including church work students enrolled in Concordia University System schools or the seminaries of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). While gifts are not able to be returned to donors, alternate ministry funding opportunities may also be available.
