Giving to Loyola

Giving to Loyola

The Loyola University Health System Office of Advancement is the philanthropic arm of both Loyola University Medical Center and Gottlieb Memorial Hospital. It is the generosity of our family of philanthropy that enables Loyola to remain a national leader in medicine, providing exceptional patient care, conducting leading-edge research and educating the next generation of physicians. 

The common link among all of our donors is the desire to make a meaningful difference in the health of our local communities, both today and for generations to come. With your continued support, we will change the world we live in and improve the long-term health and prosperity of our families, our friends, our neighbors and our future generations. We invite you to share in our vision.

Memorial Giving - Continuing a legacy

Making a gift in memory of a loved one is a touching way to honor their lives and continue their legacy. Gifts made in their name strengthen the Loyola community and give back to our patients. This is a beautiful way to honor the memory of a loved one with a legacy of helping others.

Families often choose to have memorial gifts made in memory of a loved one in lieu of flowers.   To set up memorial giving, please call the Office of Advancement at 708-216-3201.

Tribute Giving - Honoring a loved one

A tribute gift is a perfect way to honor a loved one throughout life’s milestones. This is a great way to commemorate special moments such as completing treatments, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, etc.  Your gift will not only honor the extraordinary people in your life but also will provide vitally needed support to the health system. 

Some people choose to ask for tribute gifts to celebrate special occasions in lieu of gifts. To set up tribute giving, please call the Office of Advancement at 708-216-3201.

Honor your caregiver - Fulfilling the Loyola promise

Loyola promises patients that we will go beyond the illness to treat the whole person.  If there is a special caregiver who fulfilled this promise, you can show your appreciation through the Honor Your Caregiver program. By making a gift to this program, you will not only say thank you but make a difference in the care of fellow Loyola patients.

Your caregiver will be notified of your thoughtful gift through a personal letter.  No mention of your gift amount will be included.

Make a gift in honor of your caregiver.

Planned Giving - Investing in tomorrow

There are a variety of options on how to support Loyola in your giving. Planned gifts incorporate our donor’s strong ties to the organization while leaving a meaningful and lasting legacy. There are many tax benefits to these gifts that can help achieve financial goals while also supporting Loyola. These valuable gifts allow us to invest in our future and plan for the healthcare of tomorrow.
