Giving to Loyola

Audrey G. Ratner Endowments

Created with the intention of supporting bright, service-oriented students who are called to act, the Audrey G. Ratner Endowments are the result of a generous gift in honor of Audrey G. Ratner (BSEd ’78), mother of Jennifer N. Pritzker (BA ’79), Founder & President of the TAWANI Foundation. The TAWANI Foundation's commitment includes $3.5 million gift and a challenge to the Loyola community. All gifts in support of the Ratner Endowed Funds made through 2025 will be matched dollar for dollar by the foundation, up to $3.5 million.
