Giving to Loyola

Founders' Circle

Founders' Circle

In 1540, three college roommates at the University of Paris founded the Society of Jesus: Ignatius of Loyola, Francis Xavier, and Peter Faber. This was the inception of a Jesuit heritage that lives on today.

Loyola University Chicago honors those benefactors whose lifelong commitment and unparalleled generosity make it possible for our institution to carry on the work and mission of St. Ignatius of Loyola.

For more information, please contact Melissa Mares Stambor at 312-915-7699 or e-mail Mmares1@luc.edu.

We welcome those who have given $100,000 dollars or more over the course of their lifetime into the Founders' Circle. 

Members are recognized at the following levels:

Ignatius Loyola Society $1 million or more
Francis Xavier Society $500,000 - $999,999
Peter Faber Society $100,000 - $499,999

It is this generous support of Loyola that makes a crucial difference in our ability to continue providing academic excellence to thousands of students.
