Texas State Heroes

Heroes are idealists, visionaries who dream noble dreams. Our Texas State Heroes are people who, through their unbridled generosity, have stepped forward to help us meet the needs of the state, the nation and the world while also encouraging individuals’ dreams and aspirations. The names of some of these are chiseled into the stone of buildings but all are etched into the heart and history of Texas State University.

By contributing $1 million or more, the individuals and foundations listed below are true Texas State heroes. To them, we say, “Thank you!”
