Mission of TAF
1978 - the Varsity Club was formed as a division within the LSU Athletic Department to assist in raising private funds to support the LSU Athletic Program.
1983 - the Varsity Club was replaced by, “Tigers Unlimited,” a Louisiana nonprofit corporation. Tigers Unlimited was granted 501(c)(3) status in 1984.
1987 - Tigers Unlimited reorganized and amended its Articles of Incorporation to formally change its name to Tiger Athletic Foundation.
Over the past 29 years, Tiger Athletic Foundation’s members enhance the lives of every student-athlete on every team by providing financial support for programs and facilities that ensure the opportunity to win in the class, on the field, and in life. To maintain these standards and build a strong future, Team TAF membership, support of scholarship programs, funding of projects and facilities, and planned gifts are imperative.
- Scholarships - Make a lasting impact on the education of student-athletes by donating to one of TAF’s scholarship funds.
- Philanthropic Programs – Define the future of LSU Athletics by supporting projects that sustain the tradition of a superior athletic program.
- Team TAF – Become a member of Team TAF to support the 19 varsity sports of the LSU Athletic Program through TAF’s annual fund.
- Planned Giving - A planned gift to TAF provides future student-athletes with the opportunity to become champions and legends. It promises that your passion for LSU Athletics is impactful, remembered, and revered beyond your lifetime.
