Give Back

Since 1987, more than 6,000 Scholars have entered the Terry Scholarship Program. 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.

Donate to the Terry Scholars Fund

All donations support the endowment established by Howard and Nancy Terry and will help fund scholarships for outstanding Texas students. Gifts are handled through The Terry Scholars Fund, a public charity with the sole purpose of receiving donations for the Terry Scholarship Program. The Terry Scholars Fund was created to help Terry Alumni and other philanthropists support Terry Scholarships while also enjoying a wider range of donation options and receiving maximum benefits for their contributions.

100% of every donation goes directly to Terry Scholarships.
The Terry Scholars Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and all donations are deemed tax-deductible, EIN: 88-2349834
