The Texas A&M Foundation is a nonprofit organization that unites generosity and vision to raise and manage major endowed gifts that support the future of Texas A&M University. Foundation staff members solicit and manage investments in academics and leadership programs essential to the university’s pursuit to be among the best universities. The Foundation works with former students, corporations and other Texas A&M supporters to match their charitable interests with the university’s priorities.

Every year, the Foundation processes thousands of gifts of all sizes and forms. We accept current gifts of cash, matching funds, securities, honorary gifts, memorial gifts and corporate gifts. Planned gifts such as gifts in wills, charitable trusts, or beneficiary gifts of retirement accounts or life insurance and donations of property including residential, commercial, farm and ranch land, forest land and oil and gas interests provide donors tax advantages and allow them to establish an Aggie legacy.

Support Texas A&M students

Undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships change lives and enrich the student body. Some of the best high school students can't afford today's tuition, but scholarships open a world of possibilities to them. Scholarships and fellowships also free students from the necessity of part-time jobs, giving them more time to satisfy their intellectual curiosity or to participate in Texas A&M's character-building organizations. You can create many types of undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships with a $25,000 endowment.

Inspire Texas A&M faculty

Create a gift to support faculty research and teaching through a faculty chair, professorship, fellowship or teaching award to attract superior professors to Texas A&M. By investing in the potential of one faculty member, you can affect the lives of hundreds of students. Faculty support ranges from $25,000 to $1 million.

Advance Texas A&M colleges

Exceptional programs and facilities attract and retain exceptional faculty, who, in turn, attract the best graduate and undergraduate students. You can direct your gift to a specific Texas A&M college, department or unit to support programs, building construction, equipment purchases or a lecture series. Endowed support begins at $25,000.

Celebrate the Aggie spirit

Build the Aggie spirit through support for outside-the-classroom activities, such as Fish Camp, the Big Event or the Corps of Cadets. These student programs have been turning Aggies into outstanding citizens for more than a century. They build well-rounded leaders with positive values whose contributions to business and civic life are immeasurable. Texas A&M holds academic excellence high, but our graduates draw equally on the deep values intrinsic to our student activities. Endowed support begins at $25,000.
