Learn more about the endowments already established in the College of Health Professions.

Endowments provide an investment in the future life of the college for perpetuity. This type of gift ensures the continued good works of the donor by utilizing only the earnings each year for awards. It is similar to a savings account that earns interest each year.

These gifts prepare the college to face the future and give us the tools to meet the challenge.

With planning, the program you support can bear your name or the name of someone you wish to honor.

You may also choose to support an existing fund in the college. Below is a listing of the funds. If you would like to support one of these funds, click the following link for the Texas State University online giving page and indicate which fund you would like to support in the notes section.
