Loyola Loyal Day


The university's annual day of giving will take place Wednesday, March 20, 2024, through Thursday, March 21, 2024, from noon to noon. Loyola Loyal Day gives alumni, parents, and friends across the country an opportunity to celebrate and support our mission of providing a premier Jesuit education in New Orleans' culture of creativity.

Leading with Loyalty

Will you consider joining a special group of Loyola friends in leading the way?

Would you enjoy a limited-edition Loyola object of beauty, created with cutting-edge technology by a Loyola alumna and her team?

Last year, a group of generous lead donors pooled together leadership gifts to create a Challenge Gift of $250,000, which was unlocked when our goal of 824 donors was reached. Leadership gifts designated for Loyola Loyal Day made before March 1st count towards the Loyola Loyal Day challenge gift. These gifts energize the Loyola community on Loyola Loyal Day. If you would like to discuss a leadership gift please book a meeting with a member of Loyola's Development team today!
