  • Provide prospective students the opportunity to overcome financial obstacles when considering the Texas Woman’s
  • Support our most diverse student body ever while creating a more dynamic community of future leaders who will enhance the TWU experience
  • Provide opportunities for learning and discovery and enable the future of Texas Woman’s to shine bright down the path of innovation

Annual Scholarships

A scholarship opportunity is the deciding factor for many students as they choose to continue their education or enroll in college for the first time. Scholarships are vital to Texas Woman’s with 72% of students receiving some form of federal, state or scholarship aid. Annual scholarship gifts from individuals, corporations and civic groups work to fill the financial aid gap and can start at $1,000.

Redbud Society

The TWU Redbud Society recognizes loyal members of the Pioneer family for their dedicated support to the university. Thanks to their generosity, we have the resources to fund a wide range of programs, student scholarships and groundbreaking research. Donors become eligible for society membership after they have made a gift to TWU for two consecutive years.

Faculty & Staff Giving

TWU employees are one of the university’s greatest resources. Employees can extend contributions to include philanthropy by making a one-time donation or by establishing a payroll deduction to support any area of the university. Giving back directly to Texas Woman’s ensures 100% of the gift makes an impact.

Senior Giving Challenge

The TWU Senior Giving Challenge is an opportunity for graduating seniors to make a gift for future generations of students. All gifts of $5 or more made by a graduating Texas Woman’s student to a TWU Foundation fund count toward the Senior Giving Challenge. "As a first generation student, I know how difficult it is to be successful in college. For this reason, I want to share my success with the rest of the students and leave a mark at TWU." - Maria A. Puche ’21

Crowdfunding

PioneerFunder is a crowdfunding platform created to help TWU Pioneers across all three campuses raise money so their ideas and passions can come to life. Crowdfunding is an important way to connect registered student organizations, faculty and staff with innovative ideas and meaningful projects to alumni, friends and community members who may be interested in supporting them. Your support directly impacts these initiatives when you give to a PioneerFunder campaign.
