5) Loyola University Maryland will benefit from a $1.5 million planned gift from Gordon Erberts, ’49, to support programs and initiatives in Campus Ministry and the office of mission integration. Erberts, of Toluca Lake, Calif., was inspired to make the gift after reflecting on his experience at Loyola and the rigorous Jesuit education that prepared him for success.
“Loyola did something for me, and I want to do something for them,” said Erberts. “The Jesuits are darn good teachers. They did a good job with me, and I want to pass that on to today’s young people to give them a head start on life.”
His gift benefits multiple initiatives focused on mission and ministry, primarily through four endowed funds. Loyola will create the Erberts Campus Ministry Endowed Fund to support the programmatic needs of Campus Ministry and the Erberts Assistance Fund for Student Retreats to provide grants to students who require financial assistance to attend campus-sponsored retreats. In addition, Loyola will create the Erberts Ignatian Retreat Endowment Fund to support the Ignatian retreat program for Loyola faculty, staff, and administrators. Finally, Loyola will create the Erberts Pilgrimage Endowed Fund, which will support programs that promote the Catholic and Jesuit activities and mission of Loyola. (Source)
