Loras College Receives $125K Anonymous Match as Part of Spring Appeal

DUBUQUE, Iowa – Loras College, a Catholic, liberal arts college, announced an anonymous dollar for dollar match up to $125,000 to help Loras finish its fiscal year strong in both fundraising and donor participation efforts. Loras’ fiscal year runs from June 1 to May 31.

Inspired by her son’s positive experiences at Loras, the donor wanted to help make an even bigger impact by offering this dollar for dollar match.

“Unrestricted support is significant need for the College,” the donor said. “It is an easy way to give and it can make an immediate impact. I just want Loras to be successful so that others have the opportunity to send their children to Loras.”

The match is part of Loras’ Spring Appeal effort and will allow donors to double their impact when making their annual donation to the College.

“This is a great opportunity to make a difference at the College,” said Cayla Schneider, director of annual giving. “Every gift, even gifts people may consider ‘small’, will have an impact.”
