Aggies helping Aggies: For over 140 years, and continuing now, The Association provides help in time of need. From helping A&M professors take their classes online and keeping student workers on the payroll, to making sure a student could stay enrolled and the sudden need to put Muster online-only for the first time in history, Association donors make it possible.
Stories of Impact is a video series highlighting people, groups and organizations that have benefited from the generosity of donors to The Association of Former Students.
This episode tells the story of Alfredo Alvarez '21, a cadet and member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band and the Fish Drill Team. When Alfredo's mother passed away in 2019, he initially planned to leave college in order to work and help his father support their family. But thanks to support from The Association and its donors, he was able to remain in school. Association donors also helped make it possible for Alfredo's father to see his son march on Kyle Field for the first time.
More than 50,000 Aggies, friends and supporters give an average of less than $15 a month to help provide all these services for current and former students as well as provide significant support to Texas A&M. You can add your support at any time by visiting tx.ag/give.
