We are deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Loughlin Hickey over the weekend. As one of Margaret Beaufort Institute (MBIT) trustees, Loughlin demonstrated profound care for MBIT, actively leading and supporting various developments, including the MBIT Distinctiveness conversation, sustainability initiatives, fundraising focus, and investment policy.

Loughlin was a wise and reliable friend, a creative thinker, and an adept networker. His commitment extended beyond MBIT to various charity projects, notably co-founding Blueprint for Better Business, tirelessly connecting major corporations with the imperative of serving the public purpose and common good.

His impact and presence will be profoundly missed, and his legacy will continue to inspire us. May he rest in peace.
