Just a few years ago the University of Louisiana at Monroe, like other public universities in the state, received over 65% of our total budget from the state of Louisiana. Today, less than 35% of our total budget comes from the state. Instead, the majority of our support comes from student tuition and fees and private gifts from alumni and friends.
There are many ways you can support your university. Share the progress and events at the University to promote ULM and its efforts with your friends, co-workers, and family. Give your time and talent by participating in areas that interest you whether academics, alumni chapters, arts, athletics, and many, many others.
The Foundation manages various programs, including: academic support through scholarships, professorships and chairs, alumni relations, college and departmental support, development and fund-raising operations, investment management of funds and properties, and other university-related programs. We enjoy assisting you in finding the right opportunity to support your university, your community, our future.
