Impact of Giving

Angela and Dr. Dudley Smith '79 are donors who support the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Angela and Dr. Dudley Smith '79 considered buying a tractor for their farm but ultimately put their money toward supporting students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Their endowments will have a lasting impact by supporting students in perpetuity.

Without the generous support of our donors, our exceptional success would not be possible. Donors are the driving force that provide aid to the leaders of tomorrow and make world-changing research and construction projects possible.

The positive future of agriculture is imperative as our world continues to change and grow. A gift to agriculture is a gift to help sustain the future.

Texas A&M receives less than a quarter of its total budget from state appropriations. It is likely this percentage will continue to decrease, making the Texas A&M Foundation’s role increasingly vital. Gifts from former students, corporations, foundations and others help determine the future of this great college.

You can support the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences with a gift to the Foundation that makes an impact in one of four areas:

  • Student Impact―Donors can make an impact on the lives of students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences with gifts of scholarships and graduate fellowships to the Texas A&M Foundation.
  • Faculty Impact―You can create a gift to inspire faculty research and teaching through a faculty chair, professorship, fellowship or teaching award.
  • College Impact―You may direct your gift to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences or a specific department or program. These gifts can be used at the discretion of the dean or support building construction, equipment purchases or a lecture series.
  • Spirit Impact―Your can benefit a part of the college that cultivates spirit, for example: student activities and organizations, traditions, special events, or any programs that take place outside the classroom.
