Important Updates & Announcements

  • Rollover Provision is Now Permanent!

    We are excited to announce the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Charitable Rollover provision passed through Congress and is now permanent. This provision allows individuals who have reached age 70 ½ to donate up to $100,000 from his or her IRA directly to a public charity. The donor is then able to exclude the direct rollover from taxable income. This provision is a popular way to make year-end gifts, while also satisfying IRA minimum distribution requirements without impacting taxable income.

    For more information about the IRA Charitable Rollover, or to find out if it is a good option for you, contact your advisor or Loyola Academy Director of Planned Giving Tom Cramer at tcramer@loy.org.

If you have any questions, please contact

  • Dr. Timothy G. Sassen: Go Ramblers!

    In a Loyola galaxy long ago and far, far away, there once was no Internet, no websites, no email or Twitter. In 1994, the universe that was Loyola Academy invited women into the student body. In 2004, a new athletic campus was “discovered” and developed into a top-notch sports complex and a living laboratory for science. Right around that time Dr. Timothy G. Sassen was commandeering a new enterprise into uncharted space, facilitating a cosmic change in Loyola communications: the Loyola Academy website.

  • Paul Boltz '61: Loyola Lessons Last a Lifetime

    Making a gift to Loyola Academy was an easy decision for me to make. My decision to establish a scholarship was prompted by the 50th reunion of the Class of '61 which led me to think back to my time at LA. They were great years for me because I learned a lot and had a lot of fun as well. I made friends for a lifetime and laid the foundation for the rest of my education at college and graduate school. From the Jesuits I also learned about self-sacrifice, devotion, and just plain hard work. My teachers were among the most impressive people I have ever met.
