Philanthropy at the University

Honorary and Memorial Giving

Providing for the needs of others, on behalf of a loved one, is a wonderful way to:

  • honor the memory of a cherished family member or friend,
  • celebrate a graduation, birthday, wedding, or another special event , or
  • show appreciation for the many ways a doctor, trusted advisor, dear friend, or special family member has influenced your life.

All gifts, large or small, will support medical education and research at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Through your generous support of scientific research, medical education, and clinical care the university will be able to relieve suffering and treat, cure, and event prevent diseases.

The family or individual in whose name you make the gift will receive a distinctive card acknowledging your gift. The gift amount will not be included. You will receive a donor card and a receipt for tax purposes.

Please contact Betsy C. Frantz, MPH, Assistant Vice President for Principal Gifts and Senior Advancement Officer, at 713-500-3202 or if you have questions about making a gift or would like more information.
