What is the Annual Fund?  Close
The Annual Fund is a yearly campaign to raise funds for Texas Southern University. It provides immediate funds to supplement the university’s operating budget or towards a specific need. Annual fund gifts have a significant impact on the university’s ability to support programs not funded by state appropriations. This year’s focus of the annual fund is providing scholarships to deserving students to supplement the expenses of tuition, as well as offering scholarships for recruitment of exemplary prospective students.
