Your Support Matters

Economic times are tough, and we recognize that uncertainties persist in this global economy. The needs of the LSU Law Center, however, have not diminished, and your support is needed more than ever.

From scholarships to program support, your contributions have enabled the Law Center to enhance its Tradition of Excellence and to secure its place as the state’s premier public law school. Thank you!

As the end of the year draws near, we hope that your personal circumstances will allow you to consider a charitable gift to the Law Center. Let us assist in designing a plan for your legacy gift. From IRAs to stock or cash gifts, you can make a lasting gift to support our scholarship program, specific curricular areas such as the International Program or Energy initiative, building enhancements, faculty support, or student life. Want to name a Moot Court program or support a named Junior Scholars Fellowship? We welcome your inquiry and hope that you will consider a gift to the LSU Law Traditions of Excellence Campaign.

IRA Charitable Roll Over Extended

The extension of the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Charitable Rollover was signed into law as part of the $700 billion economic bailout bill. The giving incentive permits a donation of up to $100,000 to qualified non-profits from IRAs and Roth IRAs without having to count the distributions as taxable income. The IRA rollover provision originally expired at the end of 2007.

The Law Center – through the LSU Foundation – is one such qualified recipient. For more information on the IRA Charitable Rollover, visit the LSU Foundation Website.
