Your Gift Makes a Difference


Your gift to Loras College could mean the difference between a student being able to attend Loras or being forced to attend another school.  Your gift could mean that same student gets access to the very best software, equipment and technology available, to prepare him/her for a great job in the field.  Your gift could mean that student has the chance to participate in amazing opportunities locally or abroad that will give him/her experiences that shape the student into an active learner, reflective thinker, ethical decision-maker and responsible contributor to our world.

Your gift makes a difference.

The way in which you choose to give determines how your gift is used.  Options for giving to Loras College are outlined below, or you can always contact our Development Staff for more information.


The Loras Fund

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. Think of it as our "general purpose" fund--used to support the areas of greatest need at Loras.  It is the roots by which all daily functions of the College live and thrive, and with your help, we can make it grow.

Planned Giving

As we continue to advance Loras College in the areas of endowment, faculty development, student research, academic programs and facilities, we continue to ask alumni and friends to consider significant and challenging gifts which make an impact on our students, above and beyond your annual support to the Loras Fund.

Various giving strategies allow you to:

  • Increase your current income.
  • Avoid taxes.
  • Make a generous gift to Loras College.
Examples of planned giving include: personal property or real estate gifts, retained life tenancy, life insurance, gifts through your will by bequest, and retirement fund gifts.

Designated Gift

You have the option of defining or designating what your gift will benefit.  Some examples are: the Business Division, Loras Parkway, Athletics, or the purchase of equipment for chemistry instruction.  We are happy to help you understand how a gift designation can directly support strategic plans in your specific area of interest.
