Annual Giving

The Loyola University Office of Annual Giving has a mission to secure and develop resources to assist the university in educating students. We do that through encouraging alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends to give a financial gift annually, with a concentration on gifts to the Loyola Fund, our unrestricted fund.

The Loyola Fund supports scholarships for students, and also supports the daily operation of the university. The gifts received from our generous donors can be used to help give a first generation college student a chance to make history in his or her family or to purchase light bulbs for the research labs. Our work in the Office of Annual giving touches every part of the university in some way. Our ultimate goal is to support the mission of Loyola by inspiring our target audiences to see and believe in the legacy and future of the university.

Ways To Give
We make it easy to support Loyola University New Orleans students, faculty, and programs, by choosing from three giving options.

Giving Societies
Giving societies are one of Loyola’s ways to recognize and extend our thanks to our many supporters.

Phonathon
Calling all Wolf Pack family members - the call is for you Each semester, our team of student callers reaches out to alumni, parents, and friends of Loyola University New Orleans. Talking to a student caller is a great way for you to reconnect with the Loyola family, hear updates about the university, ask questions and offer your support to The Loyola Fund.

Loyola Legacy
Loyola is proud of its multi-generational alumni families. Take a look at a few of our Loyola Family Trees.

Reunion Giving
Making a special reunion gift is a way to celebrate both Loyola and your reunion. We encourage alumni to stretch your giving in your reunion year – especially the milestones 10th, 25th, 40th, and 50th reunions.

Loyola Loyal
Loyola Loyal is an opportunity for alumni volunteers to activate as supporters of the University. Loyola Loyal volunteers help connect their fellow alumni friends, neighbors, classmates, and other Loyola connections to Loyola University New Orleans through hosting small scale events, reaching out through email or social media, participating in an alumni phonathon, or simply writing a personal note. Through connection, engagement, and philanthropic support our volunteers are making an impact on Loyola's future.

Faculty Staff Campaign
Each fall, we ask you, as members of the Loyola community, to renew your commitment to Loyola, our students, and each other by participating in our annual Faculty-Staff Campaign. This year is no different. Each and everyone’s participation is critical to the success of the campaign. The amount you give is not as important as your participation—one person, one gift, small or large - this is all we ask.
