How Your Gift Helps

Your annual support allows the UT Health Science Center to provide an integrated program of education, research, clinical care and public service that would not be available through only state-provided funding. Each college has an unrestricted College Fund which makes funds available immediately upon receipt to address urgent challenges and needs. While gifts to any and all programs and efforts are appreciated, support for the College Fund of your choice allows you to have daily, positive impact on our campus.

Our campus and college-wide priorities are centered on scholarships for deserving students, faculty and research support which allows us to attract and retain outstanding faculty and special projects which involve our clinical practice with the community. Our fundraising staff will be happy to speak with you to explore your philanthropic interest in any of these areas.

If you are interested in making a lasting impact through your giving, a gift of $25,000 or more can be used to create an endowment that will provide income through perpetuity. A signed agreement will ensure that your wishes are met every year as a student, faculty member or program becomes the beneficiary of your gift. Our development staff will be happy to work with you and create an endowment for a scholarship or other area that will be most meaningful to you.
