The Terry Foundation

Give Back

Since 1987, more than 5,000 Scholars have entered the Terry Scholarship Programs. Their lives and the lives of their families have forever been changed because of the opportunity to receive an education and graduate without the burden of excessive debt.

Mr. and Mrs. Terry requested that Scholars give back to the Foundation through their time and resources to ensure a strong Terry family. Terry Scholar Alumni give back to the Foundation in a number of ways. New Alumni, visit this page for some tips on staying in touch and involved.


Donating to the Endowment

All donations support the endowment established by Howard and Nancy Terry and will help fund scholarships for outstanding Texas students.
The Terry Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. Our EIN is 31-1551093.
