Since its establishment in 1876 as the first public institution of higher learning in Texas for African Americans, our University has executed its mission in spite of many challenges without the ongoing support of a sustaining Foundation. We need a Foundation that can reach out to a broader constituent base and deliver assistance to the University in areas where its State supported budget cannot. We need a Foundation with a focused Board of Trustees who will respond to the needs of the University expeditiously in real time and partner with the University as it develops the roadmap of Prairie View A&M University.
The Time Has Come. It is time for Prairie View A&M University to leverage all resources within her grasp – Alumni, Friends and the Community to manifest her destiny as an “Institution of the First Class”. We find ourselves in a remarkable place at a remarkable period with remarkable people poised to work on behalf of our University.
The Time Has Come for Alumni, Friends and Community to stand up, accept the challenge and support the University that has supported generations.
Thank you in advance for your support. I am honored to team with the Prairie View A&M Foundation Trustees, Staff and Future Donors as we strive to provide Prairie View A&M University a full set of tools to deliver its mission.
The Time Has Come! We start today – Growing Greatness Through Giving!

Chairman/President – Prairie View A&M Foundation
