Since Vision 2020 set the university’s sights on becoming one of the nation’s top public schools by the year 2020, every college has set higher goals for itself. To fulfill these aspirations, facilities must be state-of-the-art and faculty among the best in their field.
Exceptional programs and facilities attract and retain exceptional faculty, who, in turn, attract the best graduate and undergraduate students.
"College Impact" means your gift will benefit a specific Texas A&M college, department or other administrative unit. These gifts often affect an entire college and can include those directed toward construction, renovation or equipping a lab.
Consider making an endowed gift to the Foundation. Because we only distribute the earnings on your investment, endowments impact A&M academics forever.
You could choose to restrict your gift to a specific program or department within the college or support an excellence fund, which allows a dean or department head to use the funds for specific unit priorities. These priorities are continually evolving, so excellence funds are both generous and practical.
For example, a dean or department head could use discretionary gifts in an excellence fund for equipment acquisition, faculty teaching awards or career development, student competitions or conference travel, or special events.
In addition to discretionary funds, you also can support your college or department with a gift-in-kind by donating equipment for a lab or upgrading the communications equipment in a lecture hall. Some corporations support Texas A&M with their expertise and technologies with gifts-in-kind to the Foundation.
