Tarleton State, $682.21 by Texas Woman’s and $300 by Incarnate Word.
Midwestern State didn’t have a donation.
NCAA Division II and the LSC have the Make-A-Wish Foundation as their charity for fundraising efforts throughout the school year. TAMUK has been one of the top donors to the campaign each year since the start of the project. The TAMUK SAAC group collects money for Make-A-Wish at home athletic events throughout the school year.
