Why Give?

Gifts from alumni and friends of Texas Southern University allow us to fulfill our motto of Excellence in Achievement for our students. Your generosity and support is vital and makes a profound difference in the lives of students, as well as individuals and businesses that benefit from the University's teaching, research, and public service programs. Without loyal donors like you, we are unable to reduce the financial burdens that can threaten our students' ability to succeed academically.

While the Office of Development plays a role in advancing TSU, the support of our alumni and friends makes it possible for TSU to confidently move forward in its quest to become one of the nation's premier metropolitan institutions of higher learning.

There is no TSU without you!
