How to Support Sociology, Anthropology or Child and Family Studies


Make a donation using the UL Lafayette Foundation website (the foundation phone number is 337-482-0700).  In the form, you can use the “comments” section to direct your gift to where you would like it to go. Alternately, checks can be made out to the UL Foundation with instructions for directing the money in the notes section of the check. In these cases it is most effective to mail the check to the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Child and Family Studies and we can hand deliver it to the foundation.

We encourage our donors to use one of the funds described below by entering the name of the fund in the memo section of your check or the comments section of the Foundation web form. Please contact the department directly if you have a question or if you require special arrangements.
