Ways to Give

YOU are U-High! As a member of the Cub Community, you have a direct impact on turning the skills, talents and abilities obtained here by our students from dreams into reality. Your support affirms your belief in the benefits of a University Laboratory School education. All levels of support make an immediate impact on our students and academic aspects of our school. Whether fulfilling day-to-day needs or long-term strategic initiatives, each gift sets an example for our students about the value of giving back to the community.

Thank you for your interest in supporting University Laboratory School.

Since University Laboratory School opened its doors in 1915, much has changed in education, but for the past century, our faculty and staff have been dedicated to developing, implementing and demonstrating exemplary programs and instructional practices across the K- 12 spectrum.

Annual appeal gifts support the U Fund, which elevates the quality of a ULS education by inspiring excellence and bringing classroom curricula to life.

The annual appeal is the most critical fund-raising effort for the day-to-day business of the school. In a dynamic environment such as ours, the most urgent needs may change even during the course of the academic year. The U Fund helps ensure that University Laboratory School can continue to be responsive to the most important needs as they arise.

Today, the Foundation generates more than $500,000 through its annual appeal initiatives from a large number of Cub families from all over the country. As University Laboratory School grows to meet the changing needs of our children, the need for your support grows, too.

University Laboratory School’s educational program and its exciting plans for the immediate future are important and warrant the support of those who value what the Cub community stands for and what it seeks to achieve.

Thank you to the 2022 annual appeal donors!

Each spring, Cubs everywhere come together to lift each other up through philanthropy. U-High Giving Day is a day filled with Cub Pride and spirit and 24 hours of giving. Gifts made on Giving Day support the U Fund, which elevates the quality of a ULS education by inspiring excellence and brining classroom curricula to life; and the Tuition Assistance Fund, ensuring that a family's financial circumstances don't stand in the way of earning a ULS education.

Giving Day Donors, we thank U!

Make a gift today! For information on how you can support these initiatives and more, contact us today.

Memorial and tribute gifts offer a meaningful way to remember family and friends while making a difference at University Laboratory School.

Honor a loved one, deceased or living, by making a gift in his or her name. Graduations, birthdays and anniversaries offer an ideal way to recognize friends and family and further the mission of University Laboratory School. 

Your thoughtfulness will be shared with the family of the person, or the person, you choose to honor. The amount of your gift will not be shared.

A donor may create an endowed scholarship fund that is named for the donor or in memory or tribute of someone. An endowed scholarship fund may be restricted in accordance with the donor's preferences regarding the student's academic major, academic qualifications, financial need or other criteria. Restrictions may not be made that benefit only a specific individual, that apply only to a relative of the donor, or that would cause illegal discrimination.

An endowment is a named fund established for a specific purpose. The principle is untouched and only the interest earned is awarded for its designated purpose.


We don’t keep the pace.  We set it.

The Cub Complex is a central hub for University Laboratory School (ULS) students and families. In this important venue, Cubs can take part in experiences that facilitate their academic, athletic, and personal growth, including:

·         Baseball, football, soccer, and softball games

·         Band and Flag Corps

·         Cheer and dance teams

·         Summer camp activities

·         Alumni tailgate reunions


As the Cub community has thrived, we have outgrown the Cub Complex’s facilities. We must expand our concessions and restroom buildings and create a covered community pavilion to better serve our students, families, and alumni. Enhanced amenities will address one of our top priorities—safety—while helping our athletic directors effectively plan and coordinate athletic contests and manage crowds at sporting events. Improving safety features, increasing ease of accessibility, and constructing a new sheltered area for visitors experiencing inclement weather will ensure we continue to provide the top-tier experiences for which ULS is  known.

Like you, we understand the importance of school spirit and camaraderie. First-class Cub Complex facilities are critical to fostering our Cubs’ sense of pride in their school, their classmates and teammates, and themselves.

Your leadership gift will energize construction of the following:

•             1,533-square-foot home-side concessions and restroom facility

•             1,934-square-foot covered open-air pavilion

•             Connective Champions Courtyard


Gifts will support much-needed capital improvements to the Cub Complex, directly impacting Cub families for generations to come. Thanks to generous donors like you, every athletic contest, summer camp activity, and outdoor alumni or student event will be safe, comfortable, entertaining, and memorable. Together, we will create an outstanding space for hosting experiences that strengthen and celebrate school spirit, our sense of community, and the prestige of being a Cub.

Gifts to Champions Corner will advance your family’s legacy and provide meaningful experiences for the entire Cub community. Please contact Mila Sexton, CFRE, Senior Director of Development, Jayla WIlson or (225) 588-8470 to explore opportunities and recognize your generous contribution to this project and dedication to ULS.

Champions Corner Donors, we thank you. 

There are a number of special projects underway that require significant financial support. Gifts for special projects typically range from $5,000 to $50,000 and are dedicated to a specific purpose. 

For information on our current list of special projects, please contact the ULS Foundation office today.

A planned gift to the LSU Foundation for the benefit of University Laboratory School can be one of the easiest, most fulfilling ways to support your child’s school or alma mater. Several options exist that can assist the school and ensure that you, our donors, achieve your personal financial goals.
