Incredible achievements have been made on the LSU Health Shreveport campus over the past few years, thanks to the generosity of our donors. We are pleased to share the excellence they helped achieve in our 2020 Impact Report. We are thrilled to report a 100% increase in yearly donor support over the past four years. This incredible growth is a true testament to the passion of our donors and the visionary leadership at LSU Health Shreveport.
Since 2016, the Foundation has grown the number of endowed professorships and scholarships.
- $3.1 million was invested from over 200 benefactors to create 14 new chairs, professorships, and endowments. Endowments are fundamental in recruiting top-tier faculty members at LSU Health Shreveport.
- $1 million was invested to create 7 new endowed scholarships and awards.
“While the numbers are significant, the stories behind them are what is truly meaningful. The majority of scholarships created were designed to help make Louisiana’s healthcare workforce look more like Louisiana.” said Jesse Gilmore, Vice President for Development. “We’re inspired by our generous donors and can’t wait to see their dreams come to fruition in our future healthcare workers.”
Other information found in the Impact Report includes the progress made in the bold plans for the Center for Medical Education and Wellness and the tireless efforts of LSU Health Shreveport’s leadership, faculty, and staff in combating COVID-19.
