A look inside the LSU Foundation Center for Philanthropy

“The LSU Foundation Center for Philanthropy is a permanent reflection of the vital role of academic fundraising to LSU’s future. It unites the development team in a highly visible location where we are able to engage with donors while offering them accessibility to the university’s most popular sports venues. Our immediate adjacency to the Nicholson Gateway development, in which we are a key partner, has positioned the center as the kickoff to an exciting new entrance corridor for LSU.” —Robert M. Stuart Jr., chairperson, LSU Foundation board of directors
