Annual Fund consists of gifts from Alumni and friends that have a
direct and immediate impact on the quality of a McNeese education.
These funds when given to the Alumni Association, allow us to react
quickly to the needs of the students, faculty, and staff. This is
critical in maintaining the tradition of excellence that we have come to
expect from McNeese. As the quality and reputation of a McNeese
education increases, so does the value of a McNeese degree.
The Annual Fund provides operating resources for all areas of the
university. It also enhances the ability of the university to seek and
obtain outside funding, as many grants and corporate contributions made
to institutions of higher education are based upon the annual fund
participation rate by alumni.
The Alumni Annual Fund combines gifts from many graduates, so that each
and every gift becomes important. No matter the size, your gift can
make a difference.
The Alumni Association conducts the annual direct mail campaign
beginning the end of July and running throughout the fall. For those who
did not have a chance to give during the fall, a phonathon in held in
January and February. A portion of the proceeds from the annual fund
help to subsidize the various alumni programs listed on our website.
Many of our graduates work with their businesses to provide our donors
with discounts. Donor clubs and benefits for the different levels of
giving can be found
