HOWDY ARMY -
This Aggie Update eNewsletter contains information on the continued significance of Dallas A&M Club membership, as well as links to two upcoming virtual fundraising events: KENDRA GIVES BACK and NORTH TEXAS GIVING DAY.
Of special note is the heightened importance of your DAMC MEMBERSHIP in 2020 - as this is now our primary fundraising mechanism due to the negative ramifications of the pandemic on the bulk of our events thus far this year. Scroll down for additional details on DAMC membership-related gifts/donations.
Please also consider supporting the DAMC year-round while shopping with AMAZON, KROGER, and TOM THUMB. Each of these retailers provides easy program opportunities for the DAMC to benefit from your everyday purchases; registration instructions are included below.
Now more than ever, membership-related gifts are crucial to our annual fundraising efforts and substantially influence the ability of the Dallas A&M Club to award scholarships to deserving Dallas-area high school seniors that will be attending Texas A&M, to also occasionally contribute to important endeavors at Texas A&M, and to maintain club-related programs in Dallas County for former students of Texas A&M.
Dallas A&M Club membership applications may be submitted using the MEMBERSHIP page on the DAMC website. Please note that annual memberships are valid January 1 through December 31. In addition, your lifetime or annual donation to the DAMC, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Lifetime members and active dues-paying members for 2020 are listed on the SPONSORS & DONORS page.
THANK YOU to all those who already donated by activating or renewing their membership in 2020; your support of the DAMC is critical as we strive to maintain our collective positive impact on Texas A&M!
Founded in 1902, the Dallas A&M Club has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships to Dallas-area students attending Texas A&M - with 30 Aggies benefiting this past Spring semester from our $5,000 (2018) or $6,000 (2019) scholarship awards.
As the foremost chartered A&M Club for Dallas County, the DAMC has also generously given back to The Association of Former Students by contributing to the following: Building Enhancement Campaign, Endowed Aggie Ring Scholarship (4), Endowed Diamond Century Club, Endowed Scholarship Fund, Corregidor Muster Memorial Fund, and The Association's Annual Fund.
