In 1946, the West 德州 A&M University Foundation began as a dream to help students realize their fullest potential through the soliciting, receiving, investing and disbursing of private gifts. With an initial gift of $2,500 in 1951, the WTAMU基金会 has amassed assets of more than $50 million to date.
An independent 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, the WT Foundation’s mission is to provide deserving students with scholarship assistance and vital support for the talented faculty, staff and programs of West 德州 A&M University.
Nestled in the growing Panhandle community of Canyon, Texas, WT shares a rich history of determination and generosity. A pledge of 40 acres of land and just over $100,000 in cash helped pave the way for the present day West Texas A&M University. From these humble beginnings as West 德州 州 Normal College, WT has since grown into a nationally recognized university with nearly 8,000 students enrolled, 45 master’s degree programs and one doctoral program.
Our students go on to be doctors, lawyers, teachers….all making a tremendous impact on the communities they serve. That is why we hope you will join us today and embrace the legacy of excellence that is West 德州 A&M University.
