Ways to Give

Giving to Loyola directly impacts the lives of students every day. Your generosity is the foundation of continued success, and it creates financial assistance opportunities to ensure access to a Jesuit education for all eligible students. Gifts also support many valuable programs on campus that make the Loyola College Prep experience rewarding and special.

There are many opportunities to support Loyola and many ways to give. Please see the below options to see which fits you best. If you do not see your gift of choice below, please contact Director of Admissions, Advancement and Recruiting, Andy Cline, at 318-226-6285 or advancement@loyolaprep.org.

Cash Gifts

The most direct and simple way to provide immediate support for Loyola is to make a gift by cash, check or credit card.

Pledge Gifts

You might find that monthly, quarterly or other scheduled payments are more convenient. By making a series of pledge payments, you may be able to increase the amount of your total gift to Loyola.

Gifts of Securities

Appreciated securities are a gift of stocks or bonds that are (or will be) readily available. The deduction for outright gifts of appreciated long-term publicly traded securities (held more than 12 months) is equal to the fair market value of the securities on the date you relinquish control of the assets to Loyola College Prep. None of the appreciation is taxable for capital gains purposes. Please note: Do not sell the stock; you must transfer the securities to the School or campaign to receive the most advantageous tax treatment.

Gifts of stock of a private corporation receive slightly different treatment. You may avoid capital gains on appreciation of closely held stock while attaining a tax deduction on the stock's fair market value. As with publicly traded stock, you may obtain an immediate tax deduction of up to 30% of adjusted gross income. If the gift amount exceeds 30% of adjusted gross income, the remainder of the deduction generally can be carried over for up to five years.

Proceeds from the sale of these assets may be directed to any fund or program you wish. For security transfer information contact us.

Company Matching Gifts

Current and retired employees may be eligible for the matching gift program offered by their employer. Matching gift programs allow you to double, and in some cases triple, your gift to Loyola. Please complete your portion of the company’s matching gift form and email it as an attachment (Word or PDF) to advancement@loyolaprep.org or mail it to Loyola College Prep, Advancement Office, 921 Jordan St., Shreveport, La. 71101.
