State of Louisiana Board of Regents Gift Match Opportunity
For more than 25 years, our alumni and supporters have received a generous $40,000 match for their $60,000 gift to establish a $100,000 endowed professorship at UL. That $40,000 match has been provided by the State of Louisiana through the Board of Regents Support Fund (BORSF). Effective, July 1, 2017, that $40,000 state match will be reduced to $20,000, thus a donor will have to make an $80,000 donation to establish a $100,000 endowed professorship.
So, if you have been thinking about helping UL attract and retain top professors by creating an endowed professorship, you can still do so with a $60,000 gift and receive a $40,000 BORSF match, but only if you make your $60,000 gift by June 30, 2017. After that date, a donor will have to gift $80,000 to receive a reduced $20,000 BORSF match to create a $100,000 endowed professorship. Please act today by calling or e-mailing UL's Office of Development at 337-482-0922 or firstname.lastname@example.org to take advantage of the state's $40,000 BORSF match for an endowed professorship before the match is reduced.
