“Step Up for State” provides alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends of the university the opportunity to come together and support Texas State.

There is no minimum gift limit and all contributions are tax-deductible.

The event will also feature an active social media component on Facebook (www.facebook.com/txstgiving/) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/txstgiving).
