The Texas Alliance Foundation donated to the following Texas A&M student organizations:

The Gilbert Leadership Project { }

The Gilbert Leadership Conference exists to serve the students of Texas A&M University by providing freshmen the opportunity to develop themselves as leaders, to network and interact with one another and to understand the leadership opportunities that are available across campus to them in their time at A&M. In keeping with the traditions of the Student Government Association and Texas A&M University, the conference focuses on character, service and involvement.

Throughout the pre/post conference events and the four-day conference, GLC promotes leadership by inspiring, equipping, and exposing delegates to new experiences. Each year, GLC Programs Coordinators seek out speakers and panelists to inspire and motivate the delegates to pursue a lifestyle of service, character, and involvement. During the conference, leaders from Texas A&M and a variety of industries extend their wisdom on the GLC pillars to the delegates, as well as, interacting with them during meals and question and answer sessions. Delegates also hear Tom and Laura Gilbert share the deeply-moving story of their son, David Gilbert's life, battle with cancer, and the legacy that he left at Texas A&M.
