Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about Fulfilling our Potential: Giving Day 2024.

What is Louisiana Tech Giving Day?

Louisiana Tech Giving Day is an annual University-wide fundraising event that lasts ONE DAY. Its ultimate goal is to inspire students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends to make a gift to the University or to colleges and departments on campus that are meaningful to them. For ONE DAY we encourage you, the Tech Family, to come together as a community and show your support!

Why should I participate in Louisiana Tech Giving Day?

Donor support is critical to sustaining the same opportunities and student experience that Louisiana Tech is proud to offer its students. Donor support makes it possible to help students attend Louisiana Tech through scholarships. No matter the size of your gift, you can truly make a difference for current and future Bulldogs!

I already give to Louisiana Tech. Why am I being asked to give again?

Philanthropic support makes a difference in all areas of campus, and we appreciate ALL of our donors! However, we ask that you join together with other members of the Tech Family and consider making a one-time additional gift in support of our giving day.

Do I have to make a gift online?

While making your gift online is preferred and allows your gift to be reflected immediately in the Giving Day total, we can also take credit cards over the phone or you can have a check delivered to the Louisiana Tech University Foundation at the Marbury Alumni Center. Contact the Division of University Advancement at at 318.255.7950 with any questions.

I'm not an alumnus of Louisiana Tech. Can I still give?

Of course! Louisiana Tech strives to make a positive impact regionally and nationally, making everyone a stakeholder in its success. The Tech Family extends to current students, parents, faculty, staff, and even community supporters! If you believe in the mission of Louisiana Tech and its impact, make a gift today!

Can I make more than one gift?

Absolutely! Make sure to select the "add another designation" button and add as many gifts as you would like.

What are Giving Day challenges?

Through their pledged gifts, a group of generous donors hope to increase the impact of support to Louisiana Tech students. Meeting their challenge will unlock their gift!

Who do I contact with additional questions?

We are happy to help! Please contact the Division of University Advancement at or by phone at 318.255.7950.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

The Louisiana Tech University Foundation (TAX ID 72-6021176) is recognized as a 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS requires non-profit organizations to provide donors with a good faith estimate of the value of any benefits received as a result of their contribution, and the value of any related benefits received by the donor must be subtracted from the amount of the contribution. If a benefit is immediately known, it is listed. Benefits considered insubstantial by the IRS do not need to be considered when determining the tax deductibility of a contribution. Please consult your tax advisor with any specific questions or concerns.

When will my credit card be charged?

Immediately! Your card will be charged upon finalizing your gift.

What address should I use?

Be sure to enter the address that is associated with the credit card you're using; otherwise the transaction could decline.
