Gifts to the President's Circle have a direct and immediate impact on Tarleton students and programs and help to maintain the distinctive academic programming that defines Tarleton's reputation for excellence. The President's Circle was created in 2010 to continue the established traditions of supporting our Tarleton family -- students, faculty, and staff -- as well as our community, and, therefore, provide a source of unrestricted funds to support a wide variety of programs. At the President's discretion, the Circle provides funding university-wide for scholarships and internships, academic programs in colleges and departments and opportunities sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs. With the assistance of donors, the President's Circle continues to make a difference in our Tarleton family for years to come and foster a university of distinction, encouraging our students to not only acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to establish successful careers and become responsible citizens and leaders, but also to share our unique Tarleton spirit with all they encounter. Donors to the President's Circle are invited to special events with the President, select University events and are recognized in publications and event programs. A minimum annual donation of $1,000 is required to be recognized as a member of the President's Circle. Your gift will be used to support student-focused opportunities like the following.
