Loyola has succeeded in collecting $65.3 million dollars of its 100 million dollar goal for its Faith in the Future campaign.

The campaign leaders, including the Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J., have allocated five areas for funds to be placed into as they come in over the past two years: Tom Benson Jesuit Center, scholarships, facilities and community, Monroe, athletics, the Loyola Fund, and research and resources.

Through donations toward these areas, the board hopes to strengthen Catholic Jesuit values, extend more opportunities to talented students, enhance the campus environment, fund the university’s mission and foster academic success.

The Faith in the Future campaign’s website hosts a goal page where those who are interested can view the percentage of each area’s perceived and obtained goal.

For example, the Tom Benson Jesuit Center and Mission and Ministry would require $16 million and as of Jan. 23, 77 percent was complete according to the webpage.

The campaign aims to raise $20 million in scholarship funding, $13 million of which would go toward merit-based scholarships and $7 million would go to need-based students. As of Jan. 23, the university has obtained 99.3 percent of this goal, making it the highest met goal out of all the categories.

The funds for the Facilities and Community, Monroe Hall, Athletics sits at 21 percent completion, making it the lowest area that has received funding. Should the campaign raise more funds and allocate them to meet this goal, students can expect to see a renovation of the athletic facility and the construction of a Multimedia Center for the School of Mass Communication.

The campaign’s website accepts annual giving, planned giving, matching gifts and volunteers.

Volunteers will benefit the campaign in several ways such as serving on a campaign committee, sponsoring an event and corporate outreach. Other ways volunteers can help are listed on the Faith in the Future website along with a volunteer resource guide.

The completion of the campaign is scheduled for sometime in 2018.
