Auction Night is Saturday, March 27, 2021.
Interchange is Loyola High School’s largest annual social event and most important fundraiser of the year. Loyola underwrites a quarter of all tuition costs and provides additional financial aid for almost 30 percent of the student population. Proceeds from Interchange fund those additional scholarships for students who would otherwise be unable to attend Loyola.
This year’s month-long Interchange event features a Beatles-inspired theme, specifically the well-known song, Magical Mystery Tour. Interchange’s warm-up act is two weeks of gathering items, donations and sponsorships from superstar fans like you. This will be followed up with our headliner — an online auction and a short virtual event starring some big-name personalities and exclusive live auction items. After the show, you will begin your Magical Mystery Tour at various Tour Stops throughout the city.
Let’s Come Together to Help deserving young men be a part of Loyola.
All You Need is Love.

What kind of items are you looking for?
We ask for unique items to make the live and silent auctions interesting and successful. Be creative. Sometimes it’s not what you have, but who you know! Perhaps you know someone who has a unique talent or experience to offer. Due to the current circumstances, we are streamlining our event this year, but here are some types of gifts—not in any particular order—that tend to attract the most bids:
- Approved Loyola-themed Items (i.e. painted ceramics, art, quilt, cooler, cornhole)
- Wine (special collections) and wine tasting vouchers
- NEW! Select something directly from a winemaker, whiskey-maker, Beverage Warehouse, BevMo, TotalWine, etc. Provide us with the details and ship it to Loyola or wait and ship it directly to the winner!
- Vacation home use, travel vacations and cruises
- Fine jewelry
- Concert, theatre or sporting event tickets
- Restaurant or food delivery service gift cards
- Professional chef-inspired intimate dinners in your home
- Virtual or In-person Activity experience (i.e. game night, bocce ball, cooking class)
- Day trips, unique excursions (i.e. scuba diving, sailing, water skiing, skydiving, hot air ballooning, race car driving school)
- Golf outings
- Spa experiences
- COVID-friendly experiences (i.e. drive-in tickets, virtual event experiences, stay-at-home packages, etc.)
Still Not Sure?

How do I donate an item?
Please click here and fill out the item donation form. You can select whether it is a digital gift (i.e. gift cards, an item to be shipped later, etc.) or a physical item you have in your possession now. If it is a physical item, you can drop it off on Sunday, March 14th and receive a Drive-By Blessing from Fr. Greg. If that date is inconvenient, please contact the auction office to make other arrangements.
What is a Tour Stop?
After the Virtual Event on Saturday, March 27th, you will begin your Magical Mystery Tour at various Tour Stops throughout the city between 6:30 PM – 8 PM.
These Tour Stops are at the homes of generous host families, with front-yard stages decked out with fun sights and sounds. Drive by to receive concessions at each stop and maybe even some “merch” or photo ops to remember the night. There is also a Tour Stop at our very own Loyola High venue with the newly reimagined front of campus and Caruso Hall lit up for you to see!

What is Interchange?
The Interchange Auction is Loyola High School’s largest annual social event and the MOST IMPORTANT school fundraiser of the year.
Why is it called Interchange?
In 1973, Fr Patrick Cahalan, SJ, Loyola’s President at the time started the auction and called it “Interchange” because he believed the term is reflective of both Loyola’s location and its student body. Based in the heart of Los Angeles, Loyola is the “interchange” where people from every socio-economic, cultural, and geographic corner come together. Members of our student body come from over 200 zip codes in the greater Los Angeles area each day.
Why do we need Interchange?
The funds raised from Interchange are crucial to the mission of Loyola. In keeping with the vision of St. Ignatius to make education accessible to all students, Loyola underwrites a quarter of all tuition costs and provides additional financial aid for almost 30 percent of the student population. The proceeds from Interchange fund scholarships for those students who would otherwise be unable to attend Loyola. It is because of Interchange that Loyola is able to keep tuition within the reach of so many young men deserving of the transformative power of a Jesuit education.
Who participates in Interchange?
The entire Loyola Community–including current and past parents, students and alumni, faculty and staff– join in support of Interchange. There are many different ways to be a part of this tremendous effort.
When is Interchange?
The event usually takes place at the end of March. This year, Interchange will be held on Saturday, March 27, 2021.
What happens at the Interchange?
While we are not able to host Interchange in the traditional in-person format this year, we have a fun new way to come together as a community.
This year’s month-long Interchange event features a Beatles-inspired theme, specifically the well-known songs from, specifically, Magical Mystery Tour. Interchange’s warm-up act is two weeks of gathering items, donations and sponsorships from superstar fans like you. This will be followed up with our headliner — an online auction and a short virtual event starring some big-name personalities and exclusive live auction items. After the show, you will begin your Magical Mystery Tour at various Tour Stops throughout the city.
These Tour Stops are at the homes of generous host families, with front-yard stages decked out with fun sights and sounds. Drive by to receive concessions at each stop and maybe even some “merch” or photo ops to remember the night. Your final Tour Stop will be our very own Loyola High venue with the newly reimagined front of campus and Caruso Hall lit up for you to see!
What happens before Interchange?

We have volunteer teams in sponsorships, advertising, gift procurement, marketing, catalog, decor, and data entry.
