The mission of the Matthew Gaines Society is to honor the contributions of Senator Matthew Gaines to Texas A&M, and to demonstrate that any Aggie, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, or background can make a lasting impact on our campus.
With funding secured for a statue to commemorate Sen. Matthew Gaines on campus, these student leaders will continue their work to encourage and empower all Aggies to make a difference at our institution. The mission of the society will include the preservation of Gaines’ legacy through three pillars:
- Leadership development programs
- Student scholarships
- Honoring individuals who make a difference at Texas A&M University
We invite you to join us in continuing the legacy of Sen. Matthew Gaines Society. Gifts to this non-endowed account will be used to support the following endeavors:
- Maintenance of the public art installation and associated grounds to honor Sen. Matthew Gaines and the 12th Texas Legislature.
- Student scholarships and awards.
- Educational campus programs and events.
At the appropriate time and if sufficient funds are available, an endowment may be created to support the Matthew Gaines Society and their mission.
