Celebrating Year One of
Lead On: A Campaign for TCU
Community Phase

Your Generosity Supports A Force for the Greater Good

October 24 marks one year since we celebrated the community launch of Lead On: A Campaign for TCU, the most ambitious philanthropic campaign in the university’s nearly 150-year history with a bold $1 billion goal to drive support for Texas Christian University’s people, programs and endowment.

What an unexpected year it’s been for all of us in the TCU community and beyond. The ongoing global health crisis has created extraordinary circumstances and significant challenges for so many. While devastating and unparalleled, this pandemic also has provided opportunity for Horned Frogs to become a force for the greater good.

“I’m a member of the John V. Roach Honors College and it’s within this community that I’ve found my greatest mentors. Each person at the Honors College has made my experience at TCU exponentially more meaningful. These courses and interactions have taken my education beyond learning for a future career into learning truly for the sake of curiosity and exploration. TCU has shown me that I can be a change-maker in society and has provided me with the tools, knowledge and skills to do so.”

I always knew I wanted to go to college and that the only way for me to pay was through scholarships. TCU has made a difference in my life by teaching me that there are no limits to my goals.”
