John J. and Rebecca B. Moores Endowment Fund

Former UH classmates John and Rebecca Moores are recognized as two of the most generous philanthropists in the nation. After graduating with degrees in law and economics, Mr. Moores founded the extremely successful BMC Software company. Their gift in 1992 allowed the university to build the new Moores School of Music and the state-of-the-art Athletic/Alumni Facility. It was his idea to combine the alumni office and the athletic building, and to place a world-class performance hall in the music school, to draw the most attention and support to the University of Houston. In 1992 they also established a library endowment that is used to purchase materials in many subject areas that rotate annually.
