Leave Your Legacy

What is the Lion Legacy Campaign?

Determined to pay forward their Southeastern experiences, graduate students MJ Ahmad and Heather Miletello established Lion Legacy, the first student-driven philanthropic initiative in the history of the university in 2012. Lion Legacy is an opportunity for students or their loved ones to commemorate their time at the university by giving back.


Why should I donate to Lion Legacy Campaign?

Your gift makes a difference in the lives of students and alumni of Southeastern Louisiana University! In addition to inspiring philanthropy, the Lion Legacy campaign provides meaningful support to the Southeastern Alumni Association’s young alumni programming, ensuring that all Southeastern graduates have the tools and resources they need to be successful following graduation.


How can I support the Lion Legacy campaign?

Donate in-person or online TODAY! Donors will receive their t-shirts at Grad Fair, their commencement cord at the Lion 4 Life Launch Party and their brick will be placed before this year’s Homecoming celebration.

Beginning in Spring 2018, Lion Legacy donors of $50 or more will be invited to a special VIP reception before the Lion 4 Life Launch party and treated to special food, drinks and a chance to win a Southwest Airline gift card!
