Hurricane Harvey Update: Mobilizing Horned Frogs

Dear Campus Community:

Over the past few days, we have watched Hurricane Harvey devastate large parts of our state on an unprecedented scale. As ethical leaders and responsible citizens, we feel a sense of duty to help those affected by the storm.

To all Horned Frogs and their families who have been directly affected by the storm—TCU stands with you during this challenging time. Nearly 900 of our students come from affected counties along the Gulf Coast, and many members of our faculty and staff are working to coordinate work/class schedules with the need to help their families.

To mobilize the caring power of the Horned Frog community, we have created a website dedicated to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Here you will find opportunities to contribute to those in need, as well as answers to questions about the University’s efforts. We will continue to update this site with new opportunities for outreach and service as they become known.

In addition, a dedicated email,, is available for anyone who needs assistance or has ideas about ways to further extend our support efforts. Please reach out and let us know.

We will continue to monitor developments, as well as state and local relief efforts and needs, and I encourage our campus community to get involved and contribute to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort in a way that is most appropriate for you—whether through monetary or supply donations or by volunteering your time, thoughts, prayers and energy.

I offer profound gratitude to those who have already come forward with resources and ideas – I remain thankful to be part of the Horned Frog Family, a family that readily steps up to take care of each other, and to be a force for the greater good.
