Membership

Member information, such as member names, addresses, phone, fax and e-mail, is maintained on all members in good standing.

Application / Membership Methods
There are TWO application/payment methods for membership and other fees:
Option 1 – pay by check
Download and complete the Membership or Event form and return it with your check made payable to “LSU Foundation” for the appropriate amount, noting the “Project #” on the memo line.

Option 2 – pay by credit card
Complete the online Membership form and use “Direct Pay” using your credit card by using the URL below.
www.lsufoundation.org/cadetsmembership.
The appearance of this form will look different than our membership form, but the information requested is the same. With BOTH methods of payment, those RENEWING only need to complete the basic information. NEW Members need to complete the entire form.


Renewal form

Renewals are mailed in the late summer or early fall, prior to LSU Salutes. Additional membership opportunities are listed below along with an explanation of eligibility. For the convenience of the members, renewal forms can be downloaded here. It is requested that the renewals and the check for the dues for the new year be submitted prior to December 31.
