Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Foundation

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Foundation exists to promote the growth, quality and effectiveness of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. We solicit, invest, administer and distribute donations, gifts and bequests for the exclusive benefit of the University.

Building a world-class university is a rare and exciting opportunity. It calls for creating and molding academic programs that will be responsive to the needs of modern students and a changing workplace—programs that will give students mastery of the tools of today and tomorrow. It requires integrating technology into the classroom and, where possible, bringing the classroom to students. This is the opportunity—the journey—we have taken on. We hope you’ll join us.

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Foundation, formerly the Corpus Christi State University Foundation, was organized as a nonprofit corporation in December 1987. The Foundation’s mission is to promote the growth, quality and effectiveness of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. It was conceived by people with a vision for the future and the will to make that vision a reality. Through the efforts and generosity of founding members Mr. and Mrs. Paul R. Haas, Mrs. John Allen King, Mrs. Margaret R. Turnbull and many others, the Foundation now manages $32 million for the benefit of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.

These funds have allowed the Foundation to make significant contributions to the development of the Corpus Christi campus—funding scholarships, scientific research, chairs and professorships, construction projects and improvements in classroom technology.

We invite you to participate in the Foundation’s important work. We can assist you in crafting an endowment or gift that complements your resources and supports your own vision for the future. It is an exciting and rewarding journey. We would be extremely proud to have you along.
