TWU Houston Center Building Campaign


To date, we have been very successful in our fundraising efforts. As we near the end of this project, we respectfully ask for your support to help top off the Building Campaign. 

Buy a Chair

Chairs in the new Institute of Health Sciences Houston Center are still available and can be purchased for only $100 each. Donors who purchase chairs will be acknowledged on a wall plaque placed within the space. Recognition plaques will be updated in 2007.  Note:  Chair recognition plaques will consist of one line (24 characters maximum, including punctuation, spaces, etc.) or two lines (maximum character count 34).  The first line is the donor(s) name only.  Second line listings are used only when gift is in honor of or in memory of someone.
