Mission of TAF
The Tiger Athletic Foundation ("TAF") is a private, nonprofit corporation dedicated to supporting LSU and its
Athletic Program. TAF is administered by its own board of directors, comprised of TAF donors, which meets quarterly.
Officers of the corporation are elected bi-annually. This document introduces the opportunities that exist for your
participation in the work being carried out by TAF and the many opportunities that exist for your participation as a
Tiger fan and supporter of one of the great institutions of higher learning in the land.
Louisiana State University has a proud athletic tradition, highlighted by scores of Southeastern Conference and NCAA
championships in more than 20 men's and women's varsity sports. Thanks to the generosity of its members, TAF continues
to play an integral role in sustaining that outstanding tradition. As the primary source of private funding for LSU
athletics, TAF's mission is clear - to lead the university in building a comprehensively superior athletic program.
Contributions to TAF benefit every athlete and every team at LSU through scholarship and academic awards,
as well as through the construction and maintenance of athletic facilities. These projects, large and small, chart the
unmistakable course to excellence. And it is the shared vision of alumni and friends of LSU that are making excellence
a reality at LSU.
