Governor’s Council

Join the Governor’s Council to support Ann’s legacy.

Before she died in 2006, Governor Richards laid out her vision for the Ann Richards School. As the first in her family to attend college, she was committed to advancing education and empowering young women from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

Support Ann Richards’ legacy with an annual contribution of $1,000 or more.

Your gift supports school enrichment programming, including STEM curriculum, college visits and advising, educational field trips, teacher professional development and alumnae support.

As a Governor’s Council member, you will receive special donor benefits.
