  The Foundation:  History  
  The Foundation was formed in 1988 and organized as a nonprofit, tax-exempt, public charity to support and promote the charitable, scientific and educational mission of the LSU Health Sciences Center. Incorporation was guided by the School of Medicine Alumni Association supporting the LSU Medical Center. In 1999, the LSU campus transitioned to become the LSU Health Sciences Center comprised of six schools:
Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Allied Health Professions, Public Health and Graduate Studies.

The Foundation also transitioned to become a support organization for the six schools and executed a uniform affiliation agreement with the LSU System in 1999 defining its role as a recognized LSU affiliated organization. Through its current and past leadership, the Foundation’s assets have grown from $2 million in 1988 to over $100 million today.
