Senior Legacy

Did you ever want to pay it forward?

Now you can! Senior Legacy is your way to make a difference for future Lions.

Donate a minimum of $10 to any fund on campus — in honor of your favorite underclassman, faculty/staff member or on-campus organization — and include a personal note to them expressing why they are important to you. We'll deliver it!

What is it?

The LMU Senior Legacy is a program designed to promote the power of philanthropy as a means to celebrate community, friendship, lasting impact and giving.

Members of the graduating class are encouraged to give to Loyola Marymount University to support the programs and causes that mean the most to them.

To reflect their gift, donors may choose to honor someone on the LMU campus (a current undergraduate, professor, staff member, etc.) for whom they wish to express gratitude, encouragement or friendship. A minimum $10 gift is required to choose an honoree.

All honorees will receive a card with a personalized message and note indicating that a gift has been made in their honor. Donors may choose to remain anonymous. Gift amounts will not be disclosed.

How does it work?

Beginning in March, seniors can complete their gift information by visiting our giving page and filling out a special message for their honoree.

What are the goals?

As students graduate and become alumni, it's important they understand the power of philanthropy as a joyful way of giving back, as a way of tapping into their personal passions, as a way to express gratitude, and as a means to leave a legacy.

Our fundraising goal is to reach 100% participation by the senior class.

What can the program accomplish?

In addition to inspiring philanthropy, the program provides meaningful support to LMU. Students will have the option to contribute to ANY current fund at LMU. The cumulative effect of full participation by the senior class would reach into the tens of thousands of dollars.

How can I help?

Spread the word! We'll need to reach our seniors through every possible channel. Annual Giving staff is preparing a marketing plan and collateral materials, and is available to speak to student groups and campus leaders. For questions or to get involved, contact Danielle Oviedo at 310.338.1903 or
