Support Loyola on Giving Tuesday

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals. Now, we have Giving Tuesday: A global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Let’s all come together to celebrate generosity on Giving Tuesday, November 28, and give back to our favorite charities and organizations. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of our great tradition of generosity.


Led by the friends and partners of the 92nd Street Y in New York City, Giving Tuesday was first introduced in 2012. This idea came about as a way to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season to inspire charitable giving nationwide. Ultimately, the goal was to promote and celebrate the great American tradition of giving, but this philanthropy-based holiday has turned into so much more in six years of celebrating.

Since 2012, Giving Tuesday has grown significantly and is now celebrated throughout the world. Each year, more organizations join this cause to celebrate, promote, and motivate their employees, customers, constituents, and the general public—to give back amidst the consumerism of the holidays.


This year, Loyola is celebrating Giving Tuesday for the fourth time during our Ignatian Heritage month. As a Jesuit University, Loyola embraces the generosity embedded in its history and mission. Every day, Loyola celebrates its students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends—those who make possible this culture of generosity. We hope you will join us in celebrating this spirit of generosity on Giving Tuesday, November 28, by giving back.
