A legacy of support

Dr. Margarite Angelopoulos (Resident LUHS ’94)

Dr. Angelopoulos has established a deferred charitable gift annuity with Loyola. Through the annuity she receives an immediate tax deduction that she can carry forward for six years, and she will gain payments for life when she is ready to retire. Her annuity will eventually support Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine as the final beneficiary.

Q: Why do you feel it’s important to support Loyola?
I had a wonderful experience during my fellowship at Loyola. The technology there was excellent, and I liked the fact that it was complemented by a medical school. The medical professionals were very focused on education and technology, and I think they will continue to advance—so I thought it would be a good idea to help them on their way.

Q: What did you value about your residency at Loyola?
The school is very research-oriented, and I utilize that discipline every day. Whenever I get an interesting case, I am always looking it up and trying to determine how Loyola would manage it. Even when I’m in an outlying hospital and I have an interesting case, I will call Loyola to review it with people there.

Q: Why have you included Loyola in your estate plan?
Loyola has such a good system in Maywood. They foster and nurture students from college to medical school to residency into fellowship and support them from day one. Since I had a very positive experience at Loyola, I hope that my gift annuity will support future students as the University has supported me in my education and in my career.
