Membership in the Loyola Consecutive Giving Society is more than a reflection of a belief in the mission of Loyola. It’s an investment in a transformative education, and your gifts help to preserve the most precious parts of Loyola that we love.

How to join:

  • Make a gift of any size, anywhere, for at least three consecutive fiscal years (June 1-May 31)
  • Maintain your recognition by giving every fiscal year

John Early Society

Members of the John Early Society—our annual leadership giving society—enjoy a special relationship with Loyola University Maryland. The John Early Society recognizes our alumni, parents, and friends who show their support with gifts of $1,852 or more during the University's fiscal year (June 1 through May 31). This leadership level of support reflects the generosity of Loyola’s benefactors with the pride of the school’s founding in 1852. 

In social gatherings, presentations, and personal interaction with Loyola's President and other University leaders, members have an opportunity to engage with others who share their excitement about the University's future and commitment to helping Loyola pursue its mission of educating students to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and changing world.
