Meet Our Donors
Dr. John O’Shea ’62
Dr. John O’Shea ’62 is pleased with Loyola’s initiative to provide greater resources for need-based financial aid and program opportunities for highly motivated students who meet the requirements for admission, but who would otherwise not have the financial resources to afford full tuition. John has made a gift to Loyola each and every year since graduating. In testament to believing in something greater than himself, John has also made a provision in his will that will help ensure Loyola Blakefield continues to provide critical financial aid and resources for students.
“I’m a firm believer that Loyola Blakefield is the best private school in the region.”
Dr. V. Jeffrey Evans ’63
Dr. V. Jeffrey Evans graduated from Loyola Blakefield in 1963. Recently, Dr. Evans joined Loyola Blakefield’s Ferdinand Wheeler, S.J. Society (Legacy Society) by designating Loyola Blakefield as a beneficiary in his will.
“I decided to become a Wheeler Society member when I realized that the entire economic model of Catholic schools had changed and Loyola Blakefield really needs the support of its alumni. After doing estate planning, I realized that it is easy to leave a bequest to the school and it would really help advance Blakefield’s mission.”
Philip “Buzz” Dietz, Jr. ’60
Philip “Buzz” Dietz, Jr. ’60 is a loyal supporter of the school and has also made a provision in his will that will help ensure Loyola Blakefield continues its legacy and is empowered to carry out the work that began with St. Ignatius and the Society of Jesus over 475 years ago.
“I’ve seen Loyola blossom and expand with new buildings, upgraded facilities, and enhanced programs. I’m happy to see so many improvements around campus that will benefit the students of today and the generations of Dons to come.”
