Giving Societies

Texas Southern University is honored that you have made supporting us a personal priority.  We are moving toward becoming one of America's leading urban serving universities.  Your business and private support plays an important role in helping to fully develop to that quality.

Your gifts make a profound difference in the lives of countless individuals who benefit from Texas Southern University's teaching, research, and public service programs.  We recognize your philanthropic generosity and express great appreciation.  In response, TSU has instituted these giving societies to acknowledge your cumulative gifts.
