Loyola owes much of its remarkable tradition of growth and achievement to a dedicated community of donors whose leadership and generosity have been an essential part of the University's record of accomplishment. The most distinguished of these comprise a prestigious group of Loyola donors known as the John Early Society. The Society, named for Fr. John Early, S.J., founder of Loyola College in Baltimore, celebrates more than 30 years of donor recognition and engagement this year.
As we proceed towards our goal of becoming the leading Catholic comprehensive university in the nation, Loyola faces additional financial challenges that cannot be met by tuition alone. We have an obligation and an added responsibility to continue to recruit distinguished faculty, develop innovative curricula, and make the benefits of a University education affordable for qualified students. It is in these new challenges that leadership donors have the greatest ability to make a difference.
