What Can I Give

So, I’ve decided to give. Now what?

There are as many ways to give as there are people with a desire to do so. And we understand that what works for one donor may not be the best choice for another. Not to worry; your gift is as unique as you are. And we want the choices and the outcome to be tailored to you

Hundreds of people have become donors, making a gift – sometimes repeated gifts -- to A&M-Central Texas . And while the gifts are as different as the donors who gave them, they all have one thing in common: They know that it feels good to give.

And here’s another fact to consider: You don’t need to have personal wealth to make a big difference in the life of a University or our students. You just need to decide the amount you are most comfortable with, whether it is a “one-time” gift or multi-year pledge, how to effect it, and who or what it should benefit.
