Thank you to everyone who took the time to speak with our Dewey Callers during Phonathon this March and to everyone who donated to Loras College in support of our students!
The Phonathon brought in $425,210.00 in pledges this year, an increase of more than $25,000 from last year! More than $121,000 of the pledges were made by credit card, totaling over 30% of pledged dollars. Gifts made by credit card not only make pledging easier for the donor, but save Loras money too!
“We are very grateful to our donors and our Dewey callers. The callers put over 2,200 hours into this Phonathon and our alumni, parents and friends responded back with an amazing total of gifts. It’s great to see such support for Loras and our students’ futures,” said Jake Shireman
, coordinator of annual giving.
The Loras Fund is the foundation for all basic operations of the College. It provides the necessary financial stability for Loras to function in the distinctive manner of the Catholic tradition. Contributions to the Loras Fund create opportunities for students to study abroad, help others on service trips and find suitable internships. Donations also provide financial aid, technology in classrooms, instruments in laboratories and equipment for athletics, among other things.
