Campaign Exceeds $80 Million Mark

Efforts continue to fully fund campaign priorities

November 26, 2008

Preparing Tomorrow, the most ambitious capital campaign in the College’s history, reached $80.5 million in early May, surpassing the $80 million mark even as efforts continued to fully fund the campaign’s priority initiatives.

“On behalf of the Trustees and the entire Loyola Community, I am so grateful to our fundraising partners,” said College President Brian Linnane, S.J. “As a result of their great generosity, several items in the campaign’s agenda of needs—most notably scholarship support and academic areas of excellence—have surpassed their fundraising goals, and other campaign priorities have received significant funding.

“Building on the campaign’s considerable current momentum, we continue to seek full funding for projects including the Intercollegiate Athletic Complex, the Loyola/Notre Dame Library renovation and expansion, and special academic initiatives.”

From major individual gifts to continuing corporate commitments, from strong alumni and parent participation to an energetic campus campaign, Preparing Tomorrow rolled through the first four months of 2007 with over $6 million in new commitments, including $4 million directed to Preparing Tomorrow and $2 million in support of the annual Evergreen Fund.

Of particular note were two seven-figure commitments. The Intercollegiate Athletic Complex (IAC) received a $1 million commitment from The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, doubling the company’s support for the campaign to $2 million, while a $1 million award from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation will help fund a new college advising program in Maryland public high schools.
