Ways to Give

Make a Gift

There are almost as many ways to make a donation as there are needs to be met. Explore the section below to discover ways to make a gift.

From cash to securities to deferred gifts, there are numerous ways to show your support of the cutting-edge research and high-caliber training taking place at the health science center.

» Alumni Giving

Alumni, more than any other group, understand the importance of strong financial support for the health science center. The tradition of alumni giving builds upon today’s strong educational foundation to make tomorrow’s revolutionary discoveries possible.

» Annual Giving

Every year, the institution has more requests for unbudgeted funds than can be met. Your gift to the annual fund can bridge these gaps in funding to enhance the university’s programs of education, research and community service.

» Corporate Giving

Support from the business sector helps The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston advance research, improve clinical care, and provide quality education to tomorrow’s scientists and clinicians.

» Endowments

Endowments are a crucial recruitment and retention tool that may honor faculty with endowed positions, attract top students with endowed scholarships, and help the institution fulfill its mission of providing excellence in education, as in the case of endowed lectureships, fellowships, and awards.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities and closely held stock can be extremely beneficial — both to you and to UTHealth. You may receive an income-tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities, as well as reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes. Gifts of stock and mutual funds are coordinated by the UT System Office of Development and Gift Planning Services. Proceeds from the sale of these assets are directed to any program you wish. Please contact Charlotte Hambrick at 512-499-4300 for more information.

Wire Transfer

Please contact the development officer of the school you wish to support or Lisa Christison at 713-500-3204 for wire transfer instructions.
