Gifts of cash and securities can be directed to a specific purpose of your choosing at Texas A&M. You can give a gift of cash today or plan a gift of cash or securities in your estate that Texas A&M will receive after your lifetime.
Gift agreements are required for endowed gifts of $25,000 or more, while you can document your preference for smaller gifts with a letter, pledge card, note on the memo line of your check or in the comments section of our online giving form.
Most individuals use gifts of cash or securities to fund an endowment. When you create an endowment, the Texas A&M Foundation invests your gift—along with thousands of others—in its Long-Term Investment Pool. This is a highly diversified portfolio that is managed by our Investment Office with oversight from our Board of Trustees.
As your gift is invested in our portfolio, it produces a consistent stream of annual returns that support the campus program or purpose you designate. Because we have an annually set payout rate and carefully manage our portfolio through diversification, you can rest assured that an endowment will always support Texas A&M whether the market is up or down.
