An anonymous donor has issued a fundraising challenge to Loyola University New Orleans, and the president and the Office of Institutional Advancement are calling on all alumni and members of the university community to meet it head on.
A generous donor has pledged to give $100,000 to the university if 2,500 new donors join him in giving back to Loyola by May 12. Donations of any size and to any program are counted, but gifts must be received by the May 12 deadline in order to be included in the challenge.
“The centennial year has brought out the best in the Loyola community. This tremendous gesture on behalf of a loyal university supporter will serve to unify Loyola’s remarkable alumni and enable Loyola to continue to provide its students with an outstanding Jesuit education,” said Loyola President Kevin Wm. Wildes, S.J., Ph.D.
“We only have a few weeks to meet this generous donor’s challenge. We are calling on all alumni and friends of the university to make a contribution today and to reach out and encourage fellow members of the Loyola community to do so as well. Please consider becoming one of the 2,500 donors who help us meet this challenge.”
