TAMIU Faculty & Staff Annual Giving Challenge

AUG. 18 - SEPT. 29, 2017

Thanks to your efforts, we were able to gather over $47k in donations and over 42% participation rate, setting a modern record for faculty and staff giving at TAMIU. THANK YOU!

WE DID IT... so let's keep going! 

The Faculty & Staff Annual Giving Challenge shattered giving numbers for the last four years, so why stop now?  There is great momentum and with your help, we can go beyond 42% of givers and $47,000!

Nothing is more impressive to a donor than charity at home. Give today to help us build numbers that will impress and encourage donors to support. This is our home.
