VP for Development, Rebecca Doucet tells KATC, "All of our students compete very well in the country on many levels whether its liberal arts, sciences, engineering, business. It takes dollars to do that. And believe it or not, tuition and fees does not cover all of that. The state of Louisiana can't cover all of that. So philanthropy, giving from individuals and alumni, companies, sponsors helps us do those things."

Since its inception in 2018, SOLA Giving Day generated over $6.5 million dollars in donations to more than 320 unique nonprofit organizations, churches, and schools that serve South Louisiana.
