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.
Emergency Relief Fund
Loyola is seeing an enormous increase in requests from families for increased financial aid. Many of our families are suffering tremendous losses during this pandemic, putting in jeopardy their ability to fund a college education. Your gift to the Emergency Relief Fund will provide the critical need-based financial aid for students and their families who are most in need of assistance.
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 92% 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, and strength & conditioning are examples of the ways in which these dollars are invested in Loyola student-athletes.
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.

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.
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.
