It has been quite the year with the impact that COVID-19 pandemic has had on the world. It caused us to host two virtual Muster ceremonies, shut down our monthly Howdy Hours, as well as ended our game watching parties. We have missed gathering and networking with our fellow Aggies, celebrating Aggie wins, and reminiscing about our time at A&M. As a result, our fundraising goals haven’t been met, leading to fewer opportunities to host activities that bring Denton County Aggies together. So, Aggies, we are asking that you continue your support by updating your annual membership ($25 – individual up to $50 for a family) or by making a donation. The Denton County A&M Club is a 501(3)c nonprofit organization, so any monetary contributions, including membership, are tax deductible.
The benefits of club membership include opportunities to participate in an Aggie focused organization, which hosts monthly Howdy Hours, game watching parties, Muster, etc. Your donations, sponsorships, etc. also allow the club to provide scholarships to students who will be attending Texas A&M. Currently, we provide 6 scholarships a year, each for $1,500.
The club has awarded over $51,000 in scholarships and $6,000 in ring scholarships since 2014. In 2014, we established an endowed scholarship totaling $55,000 that provides scholarships to Denton County area students. During this time, it has funded over $12,000 in scholarships.
Each club officer donates their time and money to support Denton County Aggies and we want to do everything we can to provide our Aggies with opportunities to come together and celebrate as only Aggies do.
