The UL Lafayette Alumni Association is excited to announce new membership options and benefit levels to the Alumni Loyalty Fund. The new membership structure, which runs from July 1 through June 30 for the 2023-2024 year, includes membership levels that give alumni and supporters the option to choose the benefits they want to receive. 

The Alumni Loyalty Fund supports alumni programs, student programs, and academic areas. As the Alumni Association has evolved, the Loyalty Fund has always remained the best way to show your support. With these new updates, it’s now easier than ever to become a Loyalty Fund member and access unique benefits.

Now, there are four membership levels for alumni and supporters to choose from: traditional, collegiate, affiliate and corporate memberships. Traditional membership is for alumni who want to give 100% of their gift to the Loyalty Fund. If you’re a friend of the University but still want to support the Alumni Association, then the affiliate membership is the right option for you. For those who want to support the Alumni Association but also give to an academic college, the collegiate membership option is the perfect fit. And finally, if you have a business that would like to show its support, there are even corporate memberships available.

Each membership offers four benefit levels that you can choose from depending on your gift amount. Some of the benefits that are offered include entrance into home football game tailgates hosted by the Alumni Association, special event invitations, and branded items for your home. 

The new Loyalty Fund structure allows alumni and friends to have several options for benefits and gifts. For example, if you don’t want to receive complimentary entrance into home football game tailgates, you can choose to receive a home tailgate charcuterie board instead. You can also now make a one-time yearly gift or choose a recurring monthly payment option depending on what works best for you. 

Regardless of your membership or benefit level, your gift to the Loyalty Fund will help strengthen the Alumni Association and, therefore, strengthen UL Lafayette’s status as a top-tier university. Visit to explore membership levels, make your selection, and access your benefits. If you have questions about the Alumni Loyalty Fund, please contact the Alumni Association by email at or phone at 337-482-0900.
