Why is Alumni Giving so important?

More Tarleton Alumni than ever before show their loyalty to their alma mater through an annual gift. Alumni giving supports everything from computers in the library to student scholarships and new buildings.

As a graduate of Tarleton State University, your gift has special meaning. Among other values, your gift:

  • Verifies that you are validating the high quality education that your university offers.
  • Strengthens the credibility of your university and enables Tarleton to continually attract experienced faculty and highly driven students.
  • Helps to provide scholarships to bright and ambitious individuals who share the same dreams that you had.
  • Enhances the quality and reputation of your university and is used as a criterion in the national rankings of colleges and universities.
  • Publicly demonstrates your pride and your investment in the future of your alma mater.

The percentage of alumni giving is also a factor when corporations and foundations award grants, when high school seniors and parents evaluate colleges and universities and when other donors prepare to make their philanthropic decisions.

"I am teaching today because of the scholarships I received while at Tarleton. I saw each scholarship as a direct investment in my life as a teacher. That investment will continue to grow as I invest in each of my students in the classroom. It is a gift that keeps on giving."

- Candace Hoggard

"It is such a wonderful feeling knowing that I will have a minimal amount of debt to repay. I have the scholarships I received at Tarleton to thank for that."

- Amy Hudson

"During my time at Tarleton, I was able to gain key leadership skills, such as staff management, presentation and public relation skills, that I use every day in my current career. Without my experiences at Tarleton, uncovering my passions, strengths and career goals would have been an uphill battle."
