Gifts & Grants

Faculty, students, and staff associated with the Andrews Institute benefit from the gifts provided by individuals and organizations. These may take the form of a one-time gift or an endowed gift (whose pooled assets are invested in perpetuity). Often, endowments are named gifts that leave your own legacy or memorialize or honor the life and accomplishments of loved ones. Gifts can be designated for specific purposes (e.g., scholarships for graduate students interested in pursuing a career in mathematics or science education), or gifts may be unrestricted, providing the Andrews Institute with the flexibility to address priorities that may shift over time. Whether or not you give to the Andrews Institute through a one-time donation or an endowment, we appreciate all of our supporters – your generosity allows us to better meet the needs of children, families, and teachers in the North Texas region. Click here to make a gift or contact Development Director Marc Mitrano at 817-257-4571.
