The Texas A&M Foundation manages gifts of all types and sizes, with a focus on major gift endowments. We invest these gifts and disburse part of the investment earnings for the purposes donors designate. In this way, endowments remain forever, benefiting Texas A&M students, faculty and programs for generations.
Long-term Investment Pool
Payments to/for Texas A&M
Numerous checks and balances exist to ensure the integrity of the Foundation’s financial procedures:
Board of Trustees
Our Board of Trustees consists of seven former students, each with extensive business experience. These individuals determine our investment and fundraising policies and approve our annual budget.
An external auditor annually audits the Foundation. We publish our financial statements in our annual report and provide complete copies to the public on request.
Generally speaking, donor restricted funds are administered by full-time faculty and staff of Texas A&M University. We provide various weekly, monthly and annual reports of gift account activity to facilitate appropriate use of funds.
Partnership with the University
To ensure the Foundation focuses on the university’s funding priorities, we maintain an open line of communication with Texas A&M's president as well as the deans of the colleges.
