Leadership gifts designated for Loyola Loyal Day energize the Loyola community and create a larger impact for all donations made. Book a meeting to learn more.

To show our appreciation this year, leadership donors will be thanked with a Loyola wine stopper made with titanium and donated by Trustee Nancy Hairston.
