The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development is primarily funded as a Vision-In-Action initiative supported by Chancellor Boschini at Texas Christian University.

The Institute has also been fortunate to receive the support of many generous foundations, employee groups, small businesses and corporations. The support of the private sector has been instrumental in allowing us to implement new programs and develop research projects.

As a sponsor, you can direct your financial or in-kind support to the Institute as a whole or to a particular program or research area. In all cases, your investment will help to strengthen families and promote healthy child development.

We would be happy to discuss with you the opportunities associated with becoming a sponsor. We welcome donations of all kinds. If you have any questions please contact Valerie DeSantis Hancock at 817.257.7020 or
