We Transform Lives ear Friends,

The impact of your generosity is evident in the lives of the students and faculty who benefit from scholarships, faculty fellowships and program support. It is inspiring to see that even in the midst of an economic recession, our friends continue to play an extraordinary role in supporting the college’s teaching, research and service missions. In the past year, six new endowed scholarships were established for education students. The interest from these endowments will fund scholarships in perpetuity, making a lasting impact on future students. Additionally, through the generosity of the THA Foundation, 12 scholarships have been funded for the coming year. The THA Foundation’s annual support of our students has grown to include seven scholarships and a matching gift program that provides up to five additional scholarships when the full match has been met. Recently, the Houston Endowment, Inc. awarded a grant to the college’s Education Research Center to investigate and define challenges to student performance in Houston-area middle schools. And, the Houston Endowment’s continued support of our students also has made a tremendous impact, with over 30 scholarships being awarded last year to Houston-area students preparing to become teachers. The investments that the THA Foundation, the Houston Endowment and other friends are making in our students are paying off, both locally and nationally.

In April, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan met with representatives of Texas A&M University and other area schools to learn about our teacher preparation program and collaborations.

Duncan applauded our efforts to help meet educational needs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. And, he was encouraged to learn about academic programs within Texas A&M that require hundreds of hours of classroom experience for education students before graduation. “It seems like such a common-sense process to me, yet in talking to young teachers around the country, they express unhappiness with their college experience and lack of hands-on experience,” Duncan says. “I see you have taken care of that concern.” Preparing our graduates to make an impact in their first year of teaching or in their chosen field is one of our priority goals. Friends and donors play an important role in achieving this goal, through financial resources and education advocacy. Your support and encouragement are helping to transform lives. Thank you for all that you do. Best Wishes,

Douglas J. Palmer Professor and Dean

Five Questions with Steve

What assets are typically used to make a planned gift? Any asset can be used in a planned gift, including cash, real estate, life insurance, stocks, mutual funds, bonds, business interests, individual retirement accounts (IRAs) or other retirement accounts. Do I need to tell the Texas A&M Foundation about my planned gift benefiting the College of Education and Human Development?

What are planned gifts, and why are they so popular? Planned gifts are after-lifetime or dual-benefit gifts that benefit you, and in some cases, other family members and Texas A&M University. Planned gifts are popular because of their flexibility and the impact they can have on your estate and charitable objectives. After-lifetime gifts include bequests in wills and revocable living trusts, as well as life insurance gifts and retirement account gifts by beneficiary designation. You plan a future significant gift for after your lifetime, but you retain control and use of your assets during your lifetime. Dual-benefit gifts involve giving assets now, with you receiving payments over a lifetime or a term of years, resulting in a charitable benefit for Texas A&M at the termination of the gift plan. What are the benefits of planned giving? Planned giving can provide income for you or for beneficiaries that you designate. They can help reduce or eliminate estate taxes. They also may help reduce or eliminate capital gains and federal income tax. And the knowledge and satisfaction that you are providing significant future support for Texas A&M is certainly a benefit.

Yes, it is important for you to notify the Texas A&M Foundation about all planned gifts to ensure that your wishes are understood and followed. It is helpful for us to have a conversation about your plans as they are developing. By contacting me or a member of the Texas A&M Foundation’s gift-planning staff, we can confirm how you want to direct your planned gift and prepare an agreement that reflects your decision. It also is important for us to understand the circumstances under which we will receive your future gift and to be assured that it is directed to the Texas A&M Foundation, which receives private gifts for Texas A&M. When is the best time to set up a planned gift? The best time to arrange a planned gift is after you have educated yourself on the best ways in which to structure your gift given your particular assets, timing and gifting desires, and you have identified how you want to direct your gift. I will discuss gift use with you, and a Texas A&M Foundation gift planner will discuss gift-plan details and options and work with your attorney as your plan is contemplated and implemented. There are many ways to support the College of Education and Human Development. To consider what way might be best for you, contact Steve Blomstedt at 979-847-8655 or s-blomstedt@tamu.edu.
