Q:  Why give to the President’s Circle? 

A:  Gifts to the President’s Circle are particularly important because they provide resources for numerous needs at the university for which no other funds are available. These funds have been used to support the President’s initiatives, and they have helped us address the needs of our students and faculty.

President’s Circle funds have been designated for student scholarships, including those for students working towards pre-professional degrees and degrees in music.

Resources also have been allocated to support our faculty, and we remain dedicated to providing assistance for faculty research and development opportunities. Our faculty provide a challenging, productive learning environment and serve as mentors to our students, and we are committed to helping them enhance their own research and scholarly activities.

Q:  What is the benefit of unrestricted gifts?

A:  Tuition and appropriations from the state budget provide a portion of the operating budget at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, but we always have needs that simply cannot be met though these sources alone.
