2017 United Way Campaign

This year's campaign will run from September 5th to December 5th. More information on how to give will be provided soon.

LSU is proud to partner with the Capital Area United Way which actively impacts the community by partnering with 46 agencies and funding 108 programs that have measurable results in education, income and health. Your contribution will be invested in strategies that work to solve the underlying causes of problems in the 10-parish area that CAUW serves. All contributions can make a difference in your communities.

  • $1 per paycheck could provide seven meals at the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.

  • $7 per paycheck could provide 12 books to one child between the ages of 0-5 in our community for 5 years -- That is a library of 60 books!

  • $10 per paycheck could provide 10 vital prescriptions filled for a cancer patient.

To learn more about Capital Area United Way and the impact of your contribution, please visit CAUW.org

Don't forget, CAUW is always in need of volunteers! A great example are CAUW’s Program Investment Volunteers. These volunteers help to determine how to invest CAUW’s dollars to achieve the greatest good. They evaluate funding requests and recommend how resources are invested. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Elisabeth Altazan at elisabetha@CAUW.org.


A Message from the President

For decades, LSU has been proud to partner with Capital Area United Way to make a difference in the local community. As the flagship institution of the state of Louisiana, we have a history and commitment of giving back.

Over the next month, LSU employees will have the opportunity to give to the 2015 LSU United Way campaign.

United Way currently funds 108 high impact, high performing, and effective programs with measurable results in education, income, health, and basic needs.
