Giving Opportunities

Donate to LSU English

One of only eleven “Foundations of Excellence” at LSU, the English Department teaches about 10,000 LSU students each semester.  In these difficult times for so many in our state, your donation can help sustain and enhance the LSU English Department’s great legacy of achievement.  Your gift is essential for us to maintain our high standards of teaching and scholarship. 


How Your Financial Support Will Help

  • Develop new scholastic opportunities for our outstanding undergraduates
  • Fund awards and travel for our nationally recognized graduate students
  • Contribute to our acclaimed Readers & Writers speaker series
  • Sponsor literary events, such as lectures and conferences
  • Renovate seminar and conference rooms
  • Support faculty research projects, including travel to conferences and archives

Please check to see if your company will match your donation.  Some, such as ExxonMobil, match donations to LSU with a ratio as high as 3 to 1.  Your human resources department should be able to tell you if your company will help to stretch your gift.
