Founded in 2011, the Centennial Society is a prestigious group of individuals who strengthen and shape Loyola Marymount University. The Centennial Society honors the generosity of individuals, couples, families and organizations for their unwavering dedication to LMU through substantial cumulative lifetime giving. The threshold for induction into the Centennial Society is the provision of cash or commitments totaling $1 million or more.

Our Centennial Wall Garden stands outside the William H. Hannon Library as a visible recognition of society members, commemorating their legacy. As the Centennial Society has grown, the wall has expanded to create a lasting monument to those whose vision, dedication, and generosity enables LMU to pursue extraordinary achievements, which positively impacts our society.
