The foundation’s mission is to “Provide Texas A&M University College of Dentistry with funds and support to sustain institutional preeminence through excellence in students, faculty, research and outreach”. It does this by raising and managing private dollars for world-class faculty, leading edge research, academic programs and scholarships. Indeed, private support helps the College go beyond the limits of State funding to provide innovative and high quality programs for thousands of students and patients whose lives are touched by the College.
The foundation accomplishes its management mission by providing asset management for endowment and quasi-endowment funds, which benefit the College; and managing agency funds for specific departments and divisions of the College in accordance with donor wishes.
