Tiger Athletic Foundation offers priority points for gifts

SHREVEPORT, La. - Tiger Athletic Foundation, or TAF, has announced that it will now give priority point credit for gifts made to the LSU Health Sciences Foundation in Shreveport.
 
Beginning in 2017 priority point credit for philanthropic donations to the LSU Health Sciences Foundation will be 1 point per $1,000 donated.
 
LSU President F. King Alexander said, “This is an enormous change that will help philanthropic efforts across LSU. On behalf of the LSU Board of Supervisors, we are grateful to the TAF Board and appreciate their continued support of the university.”
 
The Priority Point System is used to allocate opportunities for LSU fans to purchase certain tickets and parking passes to LSU athletic events based on giving to TAF and other LSU Affiliated Organizations, including the LSU Alumni Association, the LSU Foundation, and the LSU Health Sciences Foundation in Shreveport.
 
President and CEO of TAF  Rick Perry said, “TAF’s Board of Directors and the Athletic Department are unanimous in their support of these changes to the priority point system.  We believe that these changes and the continued cooperation of our fundraising organizations will encourage private fundraising efforts and enhance academic opportunities for all students attending LSU.”
 
Gifts made to the LSU Health Sciences Foundation in Shreveport beginning Jan. 1, 2017 will be eligible for priority points.

If you would like to receive TAF credit for your gifts in support of LSU Health Shreveport, please contact the LSU
Health Sciences Foundation with your TAF ID # by emailing tafid@lsuhsfoundation.org or calling 318-861-0855.
