General Athletics Endowed Fund: The Joe Boylan Fund

Joe Boylan, who served as athletic director for Loyola for 19 years, will be remembered for his friendly, warm personality, his ability to connect with people, and the profound way he shaped and strengthened Loyola Greyhounds athletics.

Recognizing the need for a programmatic endowment to support Loyola Athletics, Joe Boylan started a fund—The General Athletics Endowed Fund—that Loyola wants to bring to fruition and name in his honor. The "Joe Boylan Fund" will assist the assistant vice president and director of athletics with providing the best student-athlete experiences possible for the Loyola Greyhounds.

The University aims to see the immediate impacts of this fund through investments and enhancements for Loyola Athletics in the areas of:

  • Leadership Development
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
  • Mental Health & Sports Psychology
  • Professional Development

As a programmatic endowment, the contributions to the Joe Boylan Fund will be invested alongside the University’s endowment and generate resources in perpetuity to benefit these Loyola Athletics priorities and so much more into the future.

Joe shaped what our family-like athletic community has become, and student-athletes for years will benefit from his legacy.
