Loras College has surpassed its goal of $100 million in its Inspiring Lives & Leadership campaign. The initiative has raised nearly $105 million, making it the largest and most successful fundraising effort in the college’s 178-year history.
Launched in 2013 as a catalyst for engaging alumni and friends of the College, the campaign’s goal was $75 million within four years. That goal was increased to $100 million in 2015 when it took just two years to reach that initial number. In making the unprecedented success possible, nearly half of the College’s alumni base – in total nearly 22,500 individuals – donated to the campaign, including 20 who have each given or pledged $1 million or more.
