Mark Francis Legacy Society
Named after Dr. Mark Francis, the “Father of Veterinary Medicine in Texas”, the Mark Francis Legacy Society was created to recognize individuals who have chosen to make future planned gifts of $25,000 or more to the School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences through their estate plans.
Mark Francis Legacy Society Members are displaying their belief in the enduring value of the School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences and the future of veterinary medical education at Texas A&M University.
The details of your gift will be kept confidential and you may choose to decline public recognition. New members will receive a special plaque and a lapel pin of pendant. Members will also be recognized annually at a college event and their names will appear on the Mark Francis Legacy Wall. Membership in the Mark Francis Legacy Society also qualifies you for membership in Texas A&M University’s Forsyth Heritage Society.
