Giving to Loyola


A Message from Sister Jean

A Message from Sister Jean

Warmest greetings to my Rambler family,

Writing this letter gives me the opportunity to tell you that you continue to be in my prayers during this pandemic. I trust that you and your families are safe and well, and I wish to express my gratitude for your "how are you doing Sister Jean?" check-ins that arrive daily by note card, email, and telephone calls. I am also eternally grateful to those of you who have made contributions to assist our students who are in need as a result of the COVID-19 crisis we are experiencing.

We are called to respond to the needs of our students—those who may not be able to return to Loyola and prospective freshmen who may not be able to begin their first year with us because of financial hardships brought on by this pandemic. Our response is the Loyola Commitment.

We do not yet know how many students will feel the impact of this global virus, but we have calculated that at minimum $5 million is needed for extra aid to help them receive a Loyola Jesuit education, which will prepare them for the future.

Yes, we are asking for your assistance in whatever way you are able to contribute to the Loyola Commitment and join your fellow Ramblers by extending a helping hand. Gifts of all sizes are important to our shared goal and will only be used for the above-mentioned relief for our students facing the steepest hardships. Thanks to a group of generous benefactors, your gift of any amount will be matched dollar-for-dollar until we reach $500,000.

I thank you in advance for your generosity.

May God bless you for your Loyola spirit of giving.

Go Ramblers!

Sister Jean
Chaplain, Loyola University Chicago
