Annual Giving

Sam Houston State University has honored its historical roots by providing students with an excellent education. We continue to be able to do this thanks to the support of alumni, friends, faculty and staff, parents and corporations who are part of SHSU's powerful giving community.

Annual gifts help bridge the gap between education costs and tuition income so that we are able to meet critical needs such as:

  • Student scholarships
  • Equipment
  • Technology
  • Academic program enrichment
  • Faculty enrichment

Your gift can be directed to a particular scholarship, college, department or program so that you make an impact where you desire. 

For more information, please contact Cindy Truax at 936.294.4388 or ctruax@shsu.edu
