Greyhounds Give 2019: 1,400 donors raise nearly $300,000
Loyola University Maryland raised more than $296,000 from 1,400 donors during the fifth annual Greyhounds Give one day of giving on April 5, 2019, surpassing the set goal of raising $250,000 in 24 hours.
Greyhounds Give is designed to raise money to create greater access to the Loyola experience, including the Evergreen Annual Fund, which funds need-based financial aid and scholarships.
"When we set our goal for Greyhounds Give this year, we thought we might be aiming high. But you can never underestimate the power of this amazing community of alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and administrators," said Terrence M. Sawyer, J.D., senior vice president. "The success of Greyhounds Give demonstrates that our community believes strongly in increasing access to a Loyola education for even more deserving students."
Alumni from the Classes of 2017 and 2018 made the most gifts of any alumni class year, followed by the Classes of 2015, 2016, and 2013. More than 400 current students made gifts, setting a University record for the student participation.
Of current students, the Classes of 2019 and 2021 made the most gifts. In addition to students, more than 300 parents made gifts as well. More than $77,000 was raised from donors through the Loyola Athletics Giving Challenge.
More information, including a board of social media posts and the Greyhounds Give videos, is available on the Greyhounds Give challenge site. Please note: Loyola is still in the process of tabulating the totals of donors and dollars raised.
