Loyola University Maryland raised more than $100 million during a 7-year campaign, funding scholarships and growing the university’s endowment.

The Roman Catholic school in Baltimore publicly launched the fundraising campaign in December 2013.

The campaign grew the school’s endowment $54 million while increasing funding for 55 existing scholarships.

Other funds raised have been earmarked to improve athletic facilities, strengthen academic programs, invest in the local community and support the mission and ministry of the Jesuit university.

Two million contributions this month allowed the school to complete its campaign.

Alumni Dan and Kelly Rizzo pledged $2 million for a renovation and expansion project of an existing school building. That expansion will house the university’s career center, to be named after the Rizzos.

Members of the school’s board of trustees also contributed through a $1.25 million challenge gift from the Maguire Foundation. The gift will endow the Maguire Scholars Program at Loyola.
