After reflecting on his experience at Loyola and the rigorous Jesuit education that prepared him for success, Gordon Erberts, ’49, was inspired to make a $1.5 million gift to the University through his will provisions.
“The Jesuits are darn good teachers,” Gordon says. “They did a good job with me, and I want to pass that on to today’s young people to give them a head start on life.”
His gift benefits Campus Ministry initiatives. Through endowed funds, Gordon will support students attending retreats and other programs that promote Loyola’s Catholic, Jesuit nature. In addition, Gordon’s gift benefits mission integration efforts to help faculty incorporate Ignatian ideals into academic lessons and support faculty, students, and staff as they explore questions of faith and spirituality.
Gordon’s gift supports Loyola’s ongoing Bright Minds, Bold Hearts comprehensive campaign to raise $100 million to grow the University’s endowment, scholarship funds, faculty positions, and Messina, Loyola’s living learning program for first-year students.
