What is Generosity Week?
Legend states that the Loyola family was so generous that after feeding family and soldiers, they had enough food to feed the animals. This act of giving is represented by the two wolves and kettle depicted on Loyola's shield. Today, we celebrate this act of kindness through Generosity Week. Each Spring, there is a week when the Loyola community gives thanks and shows our own generosity. The cornerstone event of the Week is Wolf and Kettle Day.
Each event featured in Generosity Week aims to spread the message of giving with the entire Loyola University Chicago community, including students, parents, alumni, faculty and staff. Therefore, every event included in Generosity Week, like Balloons for Faculty and Staff and Parent and Donor Outreach, serves to share the message of generosity with each of these groups in a unique and meaningful way.
