The Damen Society, named after Arnold J. Damen, S.J., is composed of leadership-level supporters who make annual gifts of $1,000 or more to Loyola. Members of the Damen Society send clear messages, through their generous support, that this University is on the rise and possesses a tremendous opportunity to share its Jesuit ideals with a global audience.

Father Damen helped establish Holy Family Church, Chicago’s first Jesuit parish. His vision of a church, school, and college on the city’s Near West Side led to St. Ignatius College’s opening in 1870. In 1909, the college was rechartered as Loyola University Chicago. Father Damen’s steadfast work to create a visible Jesuit institution in Chicago is reflected directly in Loyola’s ongoing success. When you become a part of the Damen Society, you join a community of leaders who honor our Jesuit tradition of excellence in education, and you help secure Loyola’s future.
