RGK Foundation gift supports Mathworks endowment
Texas State University-San Marcos

August, 2011

SAN MARCOS – A grant by RGK Foundation to Mathworks at Texas State University-San Marcos will be a big boost for the program’s “Legacy Campaign,” an endowment to establish ongoing support for core programs that impact middle and high school students in mastering high-level mathematics.

 

            The $250,000 grant will provide critical resources for the renowned Junior and Honors Summer Math Camp programs, math teacher training and the Mathworks curriculum project.

 

"We are extremely delighted to receive this gift from the RGK Foundation,” said Max Warshauer, director of Mathworks and regents professor of mathematics. “Starting as one of the earliest supporters of Mathworks more than 20 years ago, the foundation has continued to be a key partner of each new Mathworks program.

 

“Texas State and Mathworks will use this grant to continually provide opportunities to young students to do advanced mathematics,” he said. “Investing in our students’ futures is one of the most important things we can do to inspire the next generation of mathematicians, scientists and innovators.”

 

“For many years, RGK Foundation has been proud to support and nurture Mathworks’ efforts to improve math achievement for all students and to build future math leaders,” said Greg Kozmetsky, president of the RGK Foundation. “We applaud the tireless work of Mathworks’ founder and director, Dr. Warshauer, as well as the leadership of Gail and Jeff Kodosky in pledging $1.2M in matching funds to endow this innovative program.”
