Legacy Society Members Honored at Appreciation Lunch (photos)

July 1, 2014

It’s not every day that you get a chance to say you’re helping to shape the future of an organization and the 20,000+ people it serves every year -- but for the members of Concordia Lutheran Ministries Legacy Society, that about sums it up.

Of course, the members would be too humble to put it like that – but it’s pretty spot-on when you think about it. Legacy Society members are individuals who have made a bequest in the name of Concordia. Bequests can be in the form of wills or living trust gifts, gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts, retirement plans or life insurance policies that name Concordia as beneficiary.

So by “bequesting” a gift to Concordia, members help ensure the future of the organization, which is amazing.

On Tuesday, June 24, Concordia Board Members and senior staff welcomed 63 members of the Legacy Society at The 11th Annual Concordia Legacy Society Appreciation Lunch. Held at Butler Country Club, the event honored members with lunch, a message from guest speaker Mike Fiffik and words of thanks from Concordia President and CEO Keith Frndak and Director of Development Jennifer McIntire. Members were presented with a gift of a pewter bookmark from August Wendell Forge.  

Mr. Fiffik is a partner at Welch, Gold, Siegel & Fiffik PC Law Firm, a member of the Concordia Lutheran Ministries parent Board, a member of the CLM Foundation and CLM of Pittsburgh Boards, and a Legacy Society member himself.

During his speech, he discussed his time as a director for 10 – 12 years, and compared the work of the CLM Board to the missionary journey of the church in Antioch. Referring to the AARP scorecard released in June, he said that in 12 years, the leading edge of baby boomers will be senior citizens. He believes Concordia is perfectly positioned to meet people where they are – in their homes – and is in touch with the needs of this generation. He added that the prayers, sacrifice and donations of our constituency are crucial to our future.  

Following Mr. Fiffik’s presentation, Mr. Frndak illustrated our legacy through a series of questions about the history of Concordia.

Special thanks to those who were able to attend and those who helped put the event together.
