Distinguished Donors

The UL Lafayette Foundation Board of Trustees proudly recognizes those who have contributed to making the University of Louisiana at Lafayette a world-class institution. We celebrate the Distinguished Donors Honorees and the University's entire community of donors, and we recognize their investments as tools to transform education and create a lasting positive impact. The support of our Distinguished Donors represents a record-setting year for philanthropy. These gifts, combined with gifts from years past, allow the University to continue the tradition of providing a student-centered educational experience. Together, we are producing leaders in communities throughout the nation and the world. Thank you to all of our Distinguished Donors for all that they give to help inspire academic and research excellence, athletic distinction, and the Ragin’ Cajun tradition.
