Y’all did it!!!! You helped us raise $25,000 to endow the first WilCo A&M Club Endowed Scholarship. Now we are continuing to raise funds and grow the endowment. Once we reach $50,000 this will endow a second scholarship.
At our 2017 annual membership meeting in January, at the request of our club members, we voted to begin fundraising to endow our first Williamson County A&M Club scholarship with the Texas A&M Foundation. While we have awarded scholarships from our Williamson County A&M Foundation for over 25 years, and will continue to do so with our Fish Fry and other fundraisers, we have never endowed a scholarship through the Texas A&M Foundation that, once funded, will award a scholarship in perpetuity.
With overwhelming support, in the form of pledges, from our A&M Club members, we began the process of doing just that. After much discussion and modeling this endowment as closely as we could to that of our current Williamson County A&M Foundation scholarship selection parameters, we are proud to announce that we have officially set up and are now fundraising to endow a scholarship with the Texas A&M Foundation!
As an A&M Club, we will have 5 years to complete the fundraising of $25,000 to make this an ongoing scholarship recognizing our Williamson County A&M Club. (This milestone was reached in 2020.)
All donations are made directly to the TEXAS A&M FOUNDATION designated to our WCAMC fund. These donations are tax-deductible and many companies with ‘matching gift’ programs will enable your gifts to make an even greater impact. If you had planned on making a contribution to the University, please consider this option as well.
(The above link should prepopulate the account number, but if it does not then choose “UNLISTED ACCOUNT” in the first drop-down and type “WCAMC #0407309″ in the giving account name or number field as shown below.)
Or you may mail in a donation, make your check out to the “Texas A&M Foundation” and write “WCAMC #0407309″ in the memo line so that it is applied to the correct endowment account.
