The UL Lafayette Foundation promotes the educational, social, moral, and material welfare of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette by assisting in the acquisition of donations. It also invests and manages all private assets gifted to the University.
As the Foundation works toward its goals, one important common denominator is ever present: our donors. They are the element that transcends current challenges. Our donors are the people who value higher education enough to actively support it.
