Top 10 Reasons to Give
There are plenty of reasons why it's a good idea to give. Some are about making a real impact in others' lives and some are just about getting the warm and fuzzies. Find your reason and help us continue to spread the ragin' spirit and connect Ragin' Cajuns of all ages.
1. Make a difference
Positively impact students' lives and help them get the most out of their time at UL Lafayette by supporting the Alumni Scholarship Fund.
2. Make alumni events possible
Gifts to the Alumni Association Loyalty Fund help fund local and regional events we coordinate and put on for alumni and friends of the University—and you can join us! If you want to support events in a specific region or interest, you can make a gift to any Ragin' Cajun Club or Alumni Chapter.
3. Enjoy some benefits
Donors at specific levels receive numerous benefits from the Alumni Association including ticketed special event invites, special publications, travel opportunities and more.
4. Volunteer and make an impact
Help us maintain and create volunteer opportunities for all alumni and friends throughout the year. By volunteering with the Alumni Association, you can help give back to your University.
5. Earn some kudos
Giving today allows for recognition of our alumni and friends that have supported the Association and University.
6. Career and professional networking
In partnership with the University, the Alumni Association has helped launch Cajun Compass, a professional networking and mentoring platform for alumni, students, and supporters. Our continued partnership with the Office of Career Services on campus also gives you access to a multitude of resources and connections that may be hard to get on your own.
7. Support the spread of information
The Alumni Accents Newsletter, published online, invitations, and all printed publications are funded by your contribution to the Loyalty Fund.
8. Catch up with old friends
Loyalty Fund contributions help put together bigger and better events for special occasions including the annual Golden Reunion and special reunions for other classes or clubs from your years on campus.
9. Inspire a new generation
The Alumni Association collaborates with various academic and student affairs departments to support student initiatives throughout the year.
10. Show your ragin' spirit
Ragin' Cajuns Alumni continue to support all athletic events. The Alumni Association can be seen at almost every sporting event, whether they're at tailgating, pre-game socials, or watch parties. The UL Lafayette Alumni Association has had a long history of supporting our Ragin' Cajuns Athletes. With your annual contribution to the Loyalty Fund, the Alumni Association can continue that support.
