About the LAF



The Loyola Athletic Fund supports all student-athletes and every intercollegiate program at Loyola. By investing in the Loyola Athletic Fund, you are investing in our mission of nationally recognized academic achievement, high-level competitive excellence, selfless service in our community, and uncompromising character. Your gifts provide critical operating support that includes leadership development, facility and equipment enhancements, and creating world-class experiences for our student-athletes.


Loyola Athletic Fund membership begins with a $100 annual gift and increases with higher levels of giving as shown on this chart. Individuals are eligible to receive benefits for donations directed toward an annual fund: either the Loyola Athletic Fund or a specific sport. Contributions made toward capital projects or endowments are not eligible for benefits. Individuals who wish to opt-out of membership benefits must notify the Loyola Athletic Fund in writing.


In addition, Loyola University works to offset the costs of operating a successful athletics program through ticket sales, corporate sponsorships, and conference income. But, like the vast majority of Division I athletic programs, we rely on support from alumni, friends, and family to supplement the revenue of the department and provide our student-athletes with the resources they need to succeed. Growing the annual fund can help establish a competitive edge for Loyola Athletics by providing program support for coaches and staff and enhancing sports performance initiatives.


A school's athletic department is often referred to as the "front porch" of the university. A strong athletics program gives our students a sense of community, our alumni a sense of pride, and our University an elevated national reputation. The Loyola Athletic Fund provides alumni and fans with the opportunity to be a part of the success of Loyola's student-athletes. All our members help move Loyola Athletics forward and help define our future. Invest in our leaders and champions! Make your gift today!


Contributions to Loyola Athletics are considered tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Donors who do not wish to exercise their benefits and desire to receive a full tax deduction must notify Loyola University Chicago in writing when the gift is made. Please consult your tax advisor with any questions.
