Biographical Note

The North Texas State University (now the University of North Texas) Board of Regents established the foundation in 1972 to receive gift funds to be utilized for scholarships and grants for students. The Foundation was originally called the North Texas State University Educational Foundation, Inc. Scholarship and award recipients include retired College of Music Jazz Studies professor Jim Riggs, U.S. Congressman Ray Roberts, and numerous university students. In 19981, the Foundation became an independent, institutionally-related foundation with its own Board of Directors, officers, and employees. In later years the name was changed to UNT Foundation.

The UNT Foundation provides stewardship of privately contributed donations. This ensures that the money is utilized as the donors intended and is kept separate from public sources of funds. It is able to support acquiring and development of property, investments, and gift transactions.

The endowments and gift funds are distributed by providing scholarships, other forms of student aid, as well as faculty research funds, chairs, and professorships.

The Foundation utilizes volunteer leaders to serve on the board. They are recruited to fill specific needs for the proper management of the endowments and investments. The Foundation operates independently of the university.
