Every gift to Austin College matters because every gift supports students who are being educated and equipped for lives that matter. Gifts can come in many forms and meet a variety of needs from scholarships that enable students—who otherwise could not afford it—to pursue an Austin College education, to grants in support of service learning opportunities, to dollars that fund life-changing international exploration. Other gifts provide enhanced classrooms and lab spaces, underwrite new athletics equipment, fund an endowed faculty chair, support important research—or finance a new building, like the IDEA Center. Whatever the gift supports, it has but one goal: the education of committed leaders ready to take their place in a global society.
