Matching Gifts

If you work for a company with a matching gifts program, it is possible to dramatically increase the impact of your gift. In some cases, a spouse’s company will also match a gift. The ratio of the match varies from company to company, ranging from 1:1 to 3:1.

Both your gift and the matching gift will count toward your overall giving level for donor recognition.

Forms are usually available from human resources or the personnel department of your company. Complete your portion of the form and send it to the LSU School of Dentistry Office of Alumni Relations, either with your gift or after the gift has been sent. We will complete our portion of the form—verifying the receipt of your gift—and send it back to the company, which will then send the school a check.

State of Louisiana
Through the oversight of the Louisiana Board of Regents, the state offers a 40 percent match when a donor chooses to fund an endowed chair or professorship.

Endowed professorships and chairs position the school to compete with other universities to attract the finest faculty. The annual interest from the endowment supports the research, teaching, and public service of a named professor, giving professors an added incentive to join or remain as faculty with the LSU School of Dentistry.

The challenge in the next 20 years relates to the number of dentists entering the workforce. Based on statistics provided by the American Dental Education Association, more dentists will be retiring versus entering the workforce from 2014 to 2031. How does that translate for dental education? Dental schools will continue to struggle to recruit qualified faculty.
