Why Give

Texas State University is on the rise – in enrollment, size and prestige. Our university’s continued excellence is reliant on the generosity of alumni, faculty, parents, staff and friends. Every gift, no matter how large, helps Texas State provide unparalleled educational opportunities for our next generation.

Student Support

In many ways, student scholarships are the lifeblood of the university. Academic scholarships make an education at Texas State University possible for passionate, ambitious and intellectual students who may otherwise lack the funding to pursue their dreams and goals.

By supporting endowments, your generosity allows students to focus on the thing that really matters – their future. Michael Cesmirosky, a construction science and management major, received an Ingram Scholars scholarship.

“It has been a great blessing receiving the Ingram Scholars Endowment,” he says. “Thank you for allowing me to ease my financial burden and pursue my degree in construction science without worry.”

Faculty Excellence

Endowments foster academic research and intellectual exploration and provide reliable funds for critical resources, equipment, and operations. They also enable the university to support excellence in teaching and research.

“The generosity of Jerry and Linda Fields is something that I am thankful for every day. The funds from the Fields Chair of Ethics and Corporate Responsibility have allowed me to attend international and national conferences to present my ethics research, fund data collections so that I can continue my research efforts, and bring business professionals to my classes to serve as guest lecturers in order to expose my students to ethics in the ‘real world.’”

Bruce and Gloria Ingram Endowed Professorship #2, Ingram School of Engineering, College of Science and Engineering

“I’d like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the Bruce and Gloria Ingram endowments that continue to support my work through Ingram Professorship. Leveraging my extensive research and development experience in industry spanning over 36 years, I’ve been able to make significant and impactful contributions at Texas State since 2012. My contributions include: establishing mutually beneficial relationships with leading technology companies, including Texas Instruments and NXP Semiconductor; mentoring junior faculty members; and helping with the successful launch of a new master’s program in engineering by serving as its program coordinator and graduate advisor.”

Living and Learning on Campus

State-of-the-art facilities, underwritten by donor gifts, help ensure the university can meet the demands of its growing enrollment and create ideal teaching and learning environments. These contributions also promote research and athletic excellence to the benefit of students, faculty and the entire Texas State University community.

Bruce and Gloria Ingram Hall

Bruce and Gloria Ingram Hall

The new home of Texas State University’s College of Science and Engineering will bear the name of Bruce and Gloria Ingram, founders of Ingram Readymix Inc., who donated $5 million toward the construction and equipment of research facilities and a second in-kind gift from Ingram Readymix to include 20,000 cubic yards of concrete valued at $2.1 million for the construction of Bruce and Gloria Ingram Hall.

The new building has been a high priority for the university for several years, sparked primarily by rapid growth in engineering programs and research-related activities. The Ingram School of Engineering is expanding engineering programs to include an undergraduate program in civil and environmental engineering which will begin in fall 2019.

Ingram Hall is expected to open Fall 2018.
