Employee Giving

Employee Giving

As a Loyola employee, you are one of the University’s greatest advocates. You create our community every day by investing your time and talent in the university and our students—thank you. When you extend your contributions to include philanthropy, you sustain our community beyond today.

Why Does My Gift Matter?

Philanthropy grows from the inside out. Whatever the designation, an employee’s gift to Loyola speaks volumes about our institution as a sound investment and a commitment to the University’s mission.

Does my gift really make a difference?

Yes! In fiscal year 2015, 222 Loyola faculty, staff, and administrators joined together to contribute more than $157,639 to Loyola University Maryland.

I work at Loyola; why should I also give money to the university?

A high rate of faculty and staff giving is an endorsement of the institution, announcing to our supporters—alumni, friends, parents, corporations, and foundations—that Loyola is an institution worthy of support. Many college rankings consider employee participation rates in their formulas; corporations and foundations also look for high levels of support when making funding decisions.

Why is charitable support to Loyola important?

Here at Loyola, we’re proud to offer an education founded in the Jesuit tradition, where students experience small classes taught by dedicated, full-time faculty. We know this education yields well-rounded scholars and leaders who are distinctly prepared to succeed in every aspect of their lives. But the truth is, this model is not cost efficient. And sure, while we could economize by changing our educational model—say, 200 students taught by a TA—that just wouldn’t be Loyola. Instead, we turn to gifts to the university to make up the difference between tuition and the cost of providing students with an exceptional education. For this reason, annual giving is essential to meeting our mission.

Giving Opportunities

Tell us where to direct your support– student scholarships, a specific school or academic program, department or facilities. If you don't have a preference, we encourage you to choose the Evergreen Fund so your gift can be used to meet immediate needs.
