The University greatly values its donors and offers several donor recognition programs. Endowment level donors are invited to the University Foundation's annual Distinguished Donor Reception. Planned gift donors are honored and recognized through the Louisiana Heritage Society.
The Dean's and Director's Donor Reception honors donors of endowed and non-endowed gifts from $10,000 up to $50,000. At the Alumni House, donors are treated to coffee, cake, friendly conversation and a commemorative photo with the dean or director of the department their gift assists. Additionally, scholarship endowments donors of $10,000 up to $50,000 are recognized with a name plate on the scholarship endowment wall in Martin Hall.
