Innovation marks philanthropic activities

While philanthropic motivations vary, they yield a common outcome for the College of Agriculture and the LSU AgCenter: enhanced ability to drive the mission. Some donors desire to minimize financial obstacles for a promising student through a dedicated scholarship. Others fund a life altering international travel experience for a student from a small town or invest in our signature youth development programs like those highlighted in this issue. Still others bolster scientific innovation through an endowed professorship or chair. All are mission aligned and all magnanimously elevate our pursuit of excellence.

We actively cultivate and maintain a culture of high expectations and high performance throughout the LSU agricultural enterprise. Your thoughtful generosity amplifies our ability to deliver the highest quality student experiences and the most pioneering research advancements. We are laser-focused on serving the broader agricultural industry by preparing the next generation of leaders and generating scientific advancements that magnify the profitability of the agricultural enterprise.

Whether you are a long-term supporter or are just beginning to think about the role you can play in supporting our endeavors, I invite you to reach out to me for a personal conversation focused on one straightforward question: What would you like to accomplish?

In the meantime, thank you for your generosity, and thank you for supporting our journey toward excellence!
