Ways to Give
Endowed gifts create an enduring legacy for future generations and provides a lasting impact on the University.
Planned Giving is a bequest to the West Texas A&M University Foundation, and can be especially beneficial if you wish to make a gift to benefit the University without diminishing the assets available to you during your lifetime.
The WTAMU Foundation started with a dream and was established in 1946 to help students realize their full potential through the soliciting, receiving, investing and disbursing of private gifts. With an initial contribution of $2,500 in 1951, the Foundation has amassed assets of more than $30 million to date. Its mission is to utilize resources for student scholarships, faculty support and program enhancements. About the Foundation
As allocations from the state decrease and costs to students increase, contributions from the private sector become more and more important. There are many ways to help, and there are many needs, foremost student scholarships. Without your help, many of our students could not enjoy the WTAMU experience—or live the dreams that such an experience affords.
The Foundation is a nonprofit corporation existing solely for the benefit of West Texas A&M University and its students. The West Texas A&M University Foundation upholds standards of accountability.
