Loyola Loyal Day 2023: Goal Announcement 

The university's annual day of giving, Loyola Loyal Day 2023 will take place from Noon on Wednesday, March 22 to Noon on Thursday, March 23, 2023, providing alumni, parents, and friends across the country an opportunity to celebrate and support our incredible students in their pursuit of excellence. This year, funds raised during this 24-hour period will go towards scholarships for students.


Join us for YLC Wednesday at the Square

On March 22, Loyola will have a tent at YLC Wednesday at the Square. Anyone who makes a gift of $10 or more on Loyola Loyal Day will have exclusive access to the university's tent to visit with other members of the Wolf Pack and enjoy free beer and refreshments.

Leading with Loyalty

A group of generous lead donors has committed $250,000 if our goal of 824 donors is reached. These leadership gifts are pooled together to create a Challenge Gift that unlocks when our Loyola Loyal Day goal is met. Leadership gifts and pledges to the Loyola Fund and General Scholarship Fund both count towards the Loyola Loyal Day challenge gift. These gifts energize the Loyola community on Loyola Loyal Day. If you like to discuss a leadership gift please book a meeting with Development Officer Michael Battistone.
