Loyola University Chicago

Giving to Loyola

Society of the Shield

The Society of Shield honors and recognizes alumni, friends, and parents who have generously supported Loyola University Chicago through their estate plans or with a deferred gift.

The members of the Society of the Shield ensure that the spirit of St. Ignatius lives on in Loyola's mission to expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice and faith. 

There are many ways to make your gift to Loyola. You may find that a planned gift allows you to address your own financial objectives and obstacles while also creating a legacy at Loyola that will extend your generosity far into the future and on a wider scale. Simply put, planned giving allows you to make the difference you imagine in a way that is the most beneficial to you. 

If you have already included Loyola in your estate, have questions about naming Loyola as a beneficiary, or are interested in learning more about planned and deferred giving, we would love to hear from you! Please contact Joseph Like, director of gift planning at 312.915.7641 or jlike@LUC.edu
