Concordia University Magazine editor Howard Bokser describes why he supports the Community Campaign
Remembering my wife with Concordia
When I first considered giving to the university a few years ago, I wanted to create a lasting legacy and also honour the memory of my late wife, Freda.
People matter most
Concordia enriched my life by opening my mind. My teachers taught me to see the world from many perspectives and helped me understand why a lot of things are the way they are.
The ties that bind
I feel I have a moral obligation to give back to this fine institution.
Proud to make a major contribution
We, the staff and volunteers, need to step up and set the example by joining our donors and giving ourselves.
Now that's a thank-you

Adopting the right attitude
While I admit that at Loyola I spent as much time playing snooker as in the classroom, my college experience remains a big part of who I am.
Forever grateful to Concordia
Without Concordia, I would never have set out on what turned out to be a rewarding career from which I retired in 1998. When I was drawing up my will, there was no question that Concordia had to be one of the recipients of my inheritance.
Full circle indeed
There was never any question as to where I would offer the scholarship: Concordia University.
