A Donation to fit every budget
Establishing an Endowment
When a gift is endowed for a professorship or scholarship, the donor has established a legacy. The original gift amount is invested and NEVER spent. As the endowment grows from earnings so odes its impact. The Louisiana Board of Regents has two matching opportunities. If a donor makes a gift of $80,000, the Board of Regents will match the donations with $20,000. This opportunity exists for professorship and first-generation scholarships.
Additionally, a donor could make an even larger impact by establishing an endowed chair. This requires a gift of $600,000 with a Louisiana Board of Regents match of $400,000.
Gifts of Stock
Make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to LSU Shreveport. Compared with donating cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction. When you donate stock to charity, you’ll generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value. And because you are donating stock, your contribution and tax deduction may instantly increase.
