How to Give

There are many ways to support Texas A&M and few of these investments require that you write a lump-sum check. You can pledge a current gift or you can plan a gift that will be fully funded in the future.

The best giving plans make a difference in others' lives and can improve your financial and/or tax situation—often right away.

If you prefer to defer funding your gift until after your lifetime, there are several methods from which you can choose, each with different benefits. In addition, some giving methods pay you for a particular time period, after which the remainder of the gift will be your legacy to A&M.

When you support Texas A&M with a current, after-lifetime or dual-benefit gift, we’ll work with you to ensure both you and the university benefit.
