Loyola University Maryland


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.

Annual gifts can be contributed to the Evergreen Annual Fund – Loyola’s greatest need – which supports scholarship and financial aid available to Loyola students; the Greyhound Athletics Fund; or designated towards enhancing the student experience, including new and upgraded technology and equipment, academic programs, student services, and creative curricula like the Messina program.

Additional benefits of Annual Giving include:

  • Investing in the value of every Loyola degree;
  • Providing an important vote of endorsement for Loyola; and
  • Increasing Loyola's giving participation rate - a national benchmark for other colleges and universities.

You can make a gift to Loyola’s Annual Fund by calling 410-617-2296, making a gift online, or by mailing a check to:

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 “I would like to make Scheduled Payments” on the giving form 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.
