The Importance of Giving

When you give to the Texas State University Foundation, your gift has an incredible impact on our future. Private support is essential to Texas State’s ability to excel. Our students, faculty, research, and scholarly activities all have the potential to improve our region, our state, and the world. And we need your philanthropic support to create new knowledge that solves real-world problems.

Texas State University offers an outstanding educational experience through 10 academic colleges, more than 200 baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degree programs, and hundreds of student activities and programs to better prepare its graduates for fulfilling careers, leadership positions, and civic engagement.

Like Texas, our university is growing. We have added students and degree programs, built state-of- the-art facilities, and raised our research profile. Our athletic programs continue to compete in regional and national arenas. As we become a National Research University, Texas State offers opportunities for discovery, collaboration, and innovation to faculty, students, and companies throughout the region. Your gift makes it possible for us to continue on our path to becoming a top-notch research university as we sustain our student-centered academic culture.

The Impact of Endowments

Endowments enahne the academic caliber of Texas State

Endowments offset the changing – and often shrinking – federal and state funding sources for higher education. They provide a steady and stable source of funds that can be counted on in difficult times.

With reliable funding for scholarships, Texas State can attract and retain top students and improve the academic reputation of the university. Endowments also enable the university to pay competitive salaries and attract the best and brightest faculty.

Endowments can be created to fulfill a wide range of interests. Whether you wish to help students with scholarships, support a faculty position, or create new opportunities for research or scholarly activities, an endowment can fund your passion. And you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will help Texas State students now – and in the future.

As an endowment donor, you make a significant investment in the future of Texas State. We thank you for your vision in establishing these permanent sources of support.
