Your Gift Makes a Difference

Philanthropic gifts play a crucial role in the progress and continuing success of the College of Education. Accomplishing our vision to become the preeminent education program in the country depends on the continued and generous support of our alumni, friends and corporate stakeholders. Giving to the college, at any level, is a wonderful way to say thank you for outstanding education, transformative experiences and a great network of friends.

Why Give to the College of Education?

The College of Education is one of the top programs in the nation. Private support is increasingly important as other sources of funding continue to decrease. Your gifts ensure sustained excellence.

State funding previously provided 47% of the university’s budget.  Today that number is only 12%. Many people think that UT is rich because we receive revenue from the Available University Fund (AUF). The College of Education needs your support to compete for the world’s best talent. Giving to the college shows your dedication to higher education and to our mission to educate leaders that create value for society.
