From the President
Dear TAF Members:
The generous support of the membership of the Tiger Athletic Foundation has played a vital role in the success of the storied LSU Athletic program. TAF provides resources to hundreds of student-athletes to achieve their educational goals and to compete in the athletic arena at the highest level.
That generosity has also been the impetus behind improvements and construction of athletic facilities that rank among the very best. TAF is responsible for over $260 million of improvements to college football’s most revered venue, Tiger Stadium, including construction of additions to the east and west sides and the south end zone. Included in these projects were the construction of 142 Tiger Den Suites and over 6,500 club seats.
Over the years TAF has also funded the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student Athletes, the University Club Golf Course, Mike the Tiger’s Habitat, the Football Operations Center, and the suites in Alex Box Stadium, collegiate baseball’s premier facility.
Currently TAF is funding the construction of the new Gymnastics Practice Facility and the new Tennis Indoor and Outdoor facilities. Future projects include the Nutrition Center and renovations to the Football Operations Building.
TAF is also proud of the role it has played in helping to attract and retain the outstanding coaching staffs that lead our athletic programs.
The athletic tradition of LSU is one of Championships with 46 national team titles and 130 Southeastern Conference titles. The members of TAF share in that great tradition.
Thanks you for all you do for LSU, the Tigers and TAF.
Richard B. Perry
President and CEO
