Giving

Give to the LSU Student Union

We encourage LSU alumni to consider supporting the facilities, programs, and services of the Union in tangible ways. Support of the Union is an investment to ensure the continuation of a “campus home” for generations to come.
1958 Society
In November 2007, the Union Board voted to establish the 1958 Society with the purpose of continuing and preserving the LSU Student Union. The 1958 Society provides a variety of opportunities for alumni, friends, and members of the Union family to support its facilities, programs and services in tangible ways. Supporting the Union is an investment in the continuation of that “campus home” for generations to come.

The 1958 Society is the premier leadership gift recognition society for the LSU Student Union. Individuals and corporations whose cumulative giving total is $1,000 or more will be recognized as members. All gifts to the Forever LSU Campaign for the LSU Student Union will be counted in the cumulative total. Recognition levels are:

• $100,000 and above
• $25,000 to $99,999
• $10,000 to $24,999
• $5,000 to $9,999
• $2,500 to $4,999
• $1,000 to $2,499

Benefits of the Society include recognition on a special plaque in the Union, invitations to attend open houses during home football games, receiving all the latest news via e-mail, and more.

Endowments
Endowments provide a dependable source of financial support that, in turn, creates the margin of excellence the Union needs to realize its vision. Endowments can be created for graduate student fellowships, permanent art collections, awards, operational support and much more.
Naming Opportunities
The Union has permission to recognize donors of significant amounts by naming Union rooms and spaces in their honor. The donor’s gift need not have a direct relationship to the room or space.
Planned Giving
Donors may designate the Union as beneficiary of an estate or other planned gift. The University’s Development Office will work with donors who wish guidance on which planned giving option would be best for them.
