Ways to Give

Invest in Agriculture

The agricultural legacy at LSU is strong. An investment in the LSU College of Agriculture ensures the success of tomorrow's nutritionists, business consultants, environmental managers, wildlife biologists, fashion merchandisers and more. With your donation, the rich agricultural tradition will endure. 


Endowments are gifts that are invested and managed in a way that allows them, over time, to provide an income stream to the beneficiary while maintaining the gift's purchasing power in perpetuity. Endowed gifts fund scholarships, professorships, chairs and other programs and initiatives that are meaningful to our donors and LSU.

Annual Giving

A recurring contribution to the College of Agriculture provides critical support for our programs and allows us to meet the needs of our students and faculty. 

Matching Gifts

Does your employer match charitable donations? You can double or even triple your gift if your company has a Corporate Matching Program. Your employer's human resource office can provide more information or you can search companies that have a matching gift policy
