About the Foundation

Based in Houston, The Terry Foundation is the largest private scholarship provider in the state of Texas.

Help continue the education of future scholars by making a donation to the Terry Foundation. It's because of the Terry's that I was able to continue my education. Giving back is vitally important to all Terry Scholars, and I'm proud to call myself a Terry. #IMATERRY
