The Foundation for LSUHSC-NO was incorporated in 1988 as a 501(c)3, tax-exempt organization with the mission of supporting and promoting the educational, research, patient care, and community outreach programs of the LSU Health Sciences Center at New Orleans. It is governed by a corporate board composed of civic, professional and community leaders who are committed to the development and support of LSUHSC.

The Development Staff of the Foundation helps to promote this mission through developing programs of major and annual giving opportunities, by soliciting grants from foundations and corporations, through estate planning, and by facilitating and organizing numerous fundraising and recognition events. Every dollar raised is designated to one of the six LSUHSC schools: Medicine, Dentistry, Allied Health Professions, Nursing, Graduate Studies and Public Health.

LSUHSC fundraising efforts have included: LSUHSC endowed chairs and professorships, Centers of Excellence, community outreach programs, lecture series, distinguished faculty fellowship awards, staff incentive awards, academic scholarships, and applied research funds.

Funds also have been raised to support international faculty travel, graduate student travel, grants to aid theses/dissertation preparation, rare library or museum artifacts and related items not supported by state revenues. These private contributions serve as the primary nourishment for the growth and advancement of the many programs associated with LSUHSC-NO.

The Finance Staff of the Foundation manages $100 million in funds and maintains accountability for all reporting required by the IRS and the State of Louisiana for LSUHSC at New Orleans. The Research and Development Services staff maintains a database of alumni and donors for all LSUHSC schools, centers and programs.

The entire Foundation staff works closely with the chancellor, schools, the Foundation board of directors and select community and business leaders to continue bringing excellence and value to LSUHSC-NO.
