The Tech Family Always Comes Through!
Thank you for rallying together and representing the red and blue! Together, we showed the world our fierce loyalty.
You did it! Louisiana Tech's first Giving Day raised over $1.23 million for more student programs than ever before, not to mention the outstanding support of the disaster relief efforts for our University. Thank you to the almost 2,000 donors who made this day possible. You showed that together we are #BulldogStrong.
“Many individuals contributed to all areas of our campus yesterday,” said Dr. Les Guice, president of Louisiana Tech. “We are so grateful for their generosity. Their acts of caring will continue to help ignite innovation and help our campus recover from the April 25 tornado.”
The University Foundation established a Disaster Recovery Fund shortly after the storm, and almost $300,000 was raised during Giving Day for disaster relief funds alone.
“Giving Day exceeded expectations,” Guice said. “But we have learned never to underestimate loyalty of our alumni and friends. Their generous gifts on this day will help us get back on our feet, and they will help us to continue to make an impact on our city, state, and nation.”
