Our Mission & History
We connect student dreams with donor passions, and it makes a world of difference.
The LSUS Foundation promotes philanthropic support for LSUS programs and areas of study while recognizing the all-important growth and success of economic development in northwest Louisiana. The LSUS Foundation houses 58 endowed professorships and chairs and awards over 150 scholarships each year.
"Our most important objective as a board is to show the impact of a gift to higher education. It changes individual lives and builds the workforce needed to have successful communities."

"We share the million-dollar secret: $1.1 million is the average difference in lifetime earnings between someone who has earned a college degree and someone who has earned a high school diploma."
