Annual Giving

Annual Giving provides critical support for the University's annual operating budget, ensuring that its programs continue to be of the highest quality and helping to keep tuition as affordable as possible. Annual Giving donations open the benefits of a Loyola education to talented students from a variety of backgrounds, allowing the University to recruit a more diverse student body and create a campus community reflecting the world Loyola graduates will enter.

Evergreen Annual Fund

Loyola’s enduring financial goal is funding academic scholarships and need-based grants for deserving students. That’s why 100% of the Evergreen Annual Fund helps meet that challenge head on. With 99% of Loyola students receiving some form of financial aid—and most of that assistance provided by Loyola—your support of the Evergreen Annual Fund is critical. Your gift makes a Loyola education possible and accessible to even more students.

Greyhounds Athletics Fund

Gifts made to the Greyhounds Athletics Fund support the well-being of more than 400 Loyola Greyhound student-athletes. These gifts provide the athletic department's administration the opportunity to invest in the areas of greatest need among all of its priorities. Academic support, sports medicine, nutrition, travel, and strength & conditioning are examples of the ways in which these dollars are invested in Loyola student-athletes.

Designated Giving 

Annual gifts may be designated to enhance the student experience, including new and upgraded technology and equipment, academic programs, student services, and creative curricula like the Messina program.


Your Gift Is Your Participation

There is no limit to the impact of a Loyola education. The value of a Loyola education begins with your support. Strong universities have healthy alumni participation, and you can elevate Loyola’s reputation by participating in giving as a member of your alumni community. Thanks to you, the strong, vibrant Greyhound Nation grows.

Recurring Gifts

In addition to making a one-time gift, you also have the option of setting up monthly contributions. This is a great way for you to make a gift to the University without having to write a check, pay postage, or receive a reminder letter or phone call. By charging your credit or debit card each month, you will be breaking your gift into manageable contributions and making a tremendous impact on Loyola.

To set up monthly payments, check “Make this a recurring payment” on the giving form under the Payment Details section, or ask about scheduled payments if you make your donation over the phone.

Matching Gifts

Hundreds of corporations match the charitable contributions made by their employees, directors, employee's spouses, or retirees. You may double or even triple your campaign gift by checking with your company's human resources office to see if they participate in a matching gift program. If they do, simply request and complete your company's matching gift form and include it with your gift to Loyola University Maryland.
