Ways to Give:
Whether you direct your support to the UT Arlington Fund, an individual school or college, a current initiative, a specific scholarship fund or faculty endowment, your gift has an immediate impact. There are many reasons why your annual gift is important, but two are particularly meaningful. First, annual gifts are largely unrestricted, which means your gift can go directly toward priorities for the university and its colleges, schools and programs. Second, annual giving is just that—annual. By making contributions from year to year, alumni, parents, and friends provide a consistent stream of support for academic and student-life programs.
As with Annual Giving, you may direct your support to the university, its schools, colleges or a specific initiative. Major gifts allow donors the opportunity to have a greater impact by committing to a larger gift amount, pledged over a designated period of time. Whether funding a capital program, a special project or investing in an endowment fund, (whereby a portion of the investment earnings is distributed regularly to the university and the remainder is added back into the principal ensuring steady growth of the endowment) major gifts make it possible to provide significant and tremendous impacts in the lives of many.
There are many options that allow you to support the work of the university while providing for the future of your loved ones. Deferred giving encompasses almost endless possibilities, including bequests, trusts, annuities, securities, retirement plan designations, gifts of insurance policies, and gifts of retained real estate. By including UT Arlington in your plans for the future, you solidify our ability to support future students through scholarships, faculty through research resources, and programs through designated gifts.
Gifts In Kind
A beautiful painting, specialized equipment or machines, a personal collection of one-of-a-kind maps or manuscripts, all of these items, when given to the university as gifts-in-kind, have intrinsic value not only to the donor but to the department or program that receives them. By definition, gifts-in-kind are non-cash gifts—tangible personal property—that can be put to immediate use by UT Arlington or immediately converted to cash.
With an unlimited number of opportunities for collaboration, the Office of Development works to generate support for university priorities by promoting mutually beneficial relationships with corporations, foundations and other philanthropic organizations. Leadership support from our partners is critical to our continued success in creating and sustaining innovative programs in the classroom and throughout the community.
