The Prairie View A&M Foundation was established to raise funds to support excellence in all disciplines at Prairie View A&M University. The Foundation solicits and invests funds that will be allocated by Board of Trustees approval for projects and activities. The objective of the Foundation is to collaborate with the University as a fundraising arm to ensure future excellence in teaching, research, service and athletics.
Examples of projects for which the Foundation will solicit funds are:
State-supported universities provide funding for students’ basic education, however, funding for a number of areas that would enhance the overall quality and attractiveness of a Prairie View A&M University degree is not included. The Foundation’s vision is to work directly with the university’s goals to increase enrollment and attract excellent faculty. Using Foundation funding to build educational excellence will promote higher learning for current and future generations.
Prairie View A&M University has thrived for more than 130 years, producing thousands of engineers, educators, nurses, doctors, lawyers, and business and industry leaders. The Prairie View A&M Foundation has adopted a policy to enhance this past excellence by “Growing Greatness Through Giving.”
