HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University recently held its annual Giving Day
to raise funds for the university. Scheduled during Homecoming Week festivities, the
event raised $104,057 for Southeastern and its students.
“We are also excited to announce that more people across the board participated in this year’s Giving Day than ever before,” said Southeastern Foundation Director of Development Vanessa Prentice. “The total number of supporters grew by 240 percent. Over 767 Lions, including students, their families, employees, alumni and community members, came together in support of Southeastern. This level of support will make a big impact.”
This year Southeastern donors had the opportunity to select an individual department, organization, or project important to them, directly giving back to the areas toward which they feel most passionate.
