100 Days of Giving

The Loyola University New Orleans Young Alumni Pack, along with the Office of Annual Giving, unveiled “100 Days of Giving,” a social media campaign designed to encourage overall giving participation among all alumni. The campaign, which runs from April 16 – July 25, also aims to increase the percentage of alumni giving participation as Loyola kicks off its centennial celebration.

“Giving back to the university allows future generations to have an incredible Loyola experience as we all did. The centennial is an opportunity for the university to celebrate the past and future and build upon its great foundation,” says Young Alumni Pack President Michelle Clarke '06.

During each day of the “100 Days of Giving” campaign, Loyola will post a compelling reason for donating to the university through its social media outlets, such as Facebook and Twitter. A special link has been created so that all alumni can make a gift to the college, library, or program of their choice. The Young Alumni Pack board is also working to recruit 100 new alumni donors to support the university by July 25.

Alumni participation is regarded as a key indicator for measuring alumni satisfaction with their alma mater. It is, therefore, one of the critical factors used to determine national rankings such as U.S. News and World Report. While national rankings and international recognition increase the value of a Loyola degree, private support from alumni also helps keep tuition costs down.

At the other 27 Jesuit colleges and universities in the U.S., alumni giving percentages average about 16 percent. With the help of each alumna/nus, we can increase Loyola’s alumni participation percentage from seven percent to 16 percent or better by July 31. Your gift, no matter the size, can help us get there in this centennial year.
