In my two years at Loyola, I've found that the alumni, parents, and friends we turn to for support seem to understand, quite deeply, that their contributions to this University are more important than ever. Your belief in Loyola, and your willingness to demonstrate that belief through your personal generosity, have grown even stronger as we have asked more and more of you.
You can see the depth of this belief and of your commitment in the information we share in this report—in the lists of names, hundreds, even thousands long, of individuals and organizations who have continued to show their support for Loyola; in the statistics that show record levels of cash contributions, and in the participation rate for our Senior Class Gift Campaign. I know that behind every name and every statistic there is a personal story, or stories, that inspired your support for Loyola. And I know that because of you, our current students will one day look back on their own memories, at the countless ways their lives have been shaped by their time at Loyola, and be moved to do the same for the next generation of Greyhounds.
Thank you again for the kindness you have shown me and all the members of our advancement staff, and for your extraordinary support of Loyola University Maryland.
Vice President for Advancement
