Thank you for supporting our students
Founders’ Dinner is Loyola’s signature fundraising event. This year, 800 guests attended a record-breaking event at the Skylight Board of Trade to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Arrupe College, Loyola’s innovative and successful two-year college for talented, first-generation students who have been historically underrepresented in higher education.
We were delighted to honor John and Kathy Schreiber with the Heart of Loyola Award and Lidia Bastianich and Mark Shriver with the Spirit of Arrupe Award.
Thanks to many generous friends and supporters of the University and Arrupe College who attended, we exceeded the original goal and raised more than $2.5 million, which will empower talented students to achieve their dreams. Proceeds from the evening will provide a foundation of support that is critical to our students’ success, and we’re just getting started.
We are pleased to announce that a generous family has offered to match the next $50,000 of donations to Arrupe College. You have the opportunity to help our students even more as we look to build on the excitement of the event and strive toward $3 million with the help of this match. Thank you for considering making a gift.
