Support Members of the Loyola Community in Need

During this time of uncertainty, we know many in our community are facing difficulties as a result of COVID-19.

Loyola University Maryland is keeping a close eye on our students and other members of our community who are the most vulnerable—physically, emotionally, and economically. We are working to mitigate the financial impact these sudden circumstances have had on our students, faculty and staff, helping with travel, housing, technology needs, and more resulting from the COVID-19 virus

Many have asked how they can help members of the Loyola community most in need. Your gift to the Emergency Relief Fund will aid community members most in need of assistance. This fund will offset the known and unknown costs and expenses the University is incurring to support our community during this difficult time.

Give to the Emergency Relief Fund

Loyola is taking bold and necessary steps to protect our campus community, and we want to do even more to support our community at an individual level – especially those who are experiencing hardship due to COVID-19. The Emergency Relief Fund supports this effort, including:

  • Travel costs for students in need to return home
  • Providing housing and meals for students without a safe home to return to
  • COVID-19 pay options for employees who need to take sick leave to care for themselves or loved ones
  • Helping students return home from study abroad programs and setting up courses for those without distance-learning options
  • Paying student workers who need their wages away from campus
  • Providing emergency equipment and technology (laptops, web cameras, WiFi hotspots, and more) for high-need students who cannot afford it otherwise
  • Supporting faculty for online instruction
  • Additional current and future unforeseen expenses related to the massive impact of COVID-19

This is at the heart of who we are as a Jesuit Catholic university. We are hopeful that the Loyola family will unite in support of these initiatives. Please consider making a gift—of any size—to help our community members in need.

Evergreen Annual Fund

Contributions to the Evergreen Annual Fund, which supports need-based student financial aid, are needed now more than ever. A gift to the Evergreen Annual Fund will help Loyola award much-needed scholarship assistance to students who want to stay at Loyola but may not be able to do so due to changed financial circumstances.
