About the President's Circle

The President’s Circle recognizes the generous contributions of our most dedicated donors. By providing a foundation pillar of philanthropy at A&M-San Antonio, President’s Circle members support our students through unrestricted annual gifts of $1,000 or more.

Why give to the President's Circle

The most immediate needs of a university can change as quickly as the weather. The President’s Circle supports the President’s Discretionary Fund which helps A&M-San Antonio respond to our most pressing needs quickly and ensure our students have the tools and support they need.

Your gift to the President’s Circle will support a range of projects on campus. In the past President Matson has directed funds given by the President’s Circle to support:

  • Emergency Aid Grant - helps students who are experiencing unexpected needs
  • Student and Faculty Research and Learning Grants - support transformational opportunities for discovery, research and exploration
