More than 68% of gifts were for academics and 32% were for athletics.
About $1.3 billion was for the flagship Baton Rouge campus and the LSU AgCenter. $115.6 million went to scholarships. $245 million from Our Lady of the Lake and LCMC Health went to transforming healthcare in the state. $171.1 million went to health and biomedical campuses, such as LSU Health New Orleans, LSU Health Shreveport, and LSU’s Pennington Biomedical Research Center.
