WAYS TO GIVE TO UTPA
 

Higher education today presents opportunities for learning, innovation and experience more than ever before.  Every gift matters, no matter its size. Your gift, in the form and for the purpose you choose, will play a crucial role in the progress and continuing success of the University. Here are some of the ways you can give to UTPA.

Cash, Checks, Credit Cards

Gifts of cash, by check or credit card are the easiest to make and are also tax deductible in the year given. UTPA also accepts pledges which can be paid over time with a payment schedule that works best for you.

To make a gift by credit card, you can give now using our secure server, or call 800-687-4602 and provide your credit card information over the phone.

Pledges and cash gifts made by check (payable to The University of Texas-Pan American) should be mailed with your pledge card or a letter stating your gift’s purpose to:

The University of Texas-Pan American

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities, closely-held stock, bonds or mutual funds can be extremely beneficial –both to you and to UTPA.  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.

Please contact our Gift Planning Office at (956) 665-2352, or visit their website.  

Planned Gifts

Donors who plan their gifts not only help make a difference… they can also maximize their charitable gifting potential, increase their own income and create an even greater legacy for loved ones.

For more information contact UTPA’s Gift Planning Office at 956-665-2352, or visit the Gift Planning website.

Endowments

You can provide permanent support to UTPA and honor someone important to you when you create an endowment. The money is invested, and each year a distribution is made from the endowment to support the program or area of your choice. Because endowment gifts generate earnings each year, they play a critical role in the University’s long-term financial stability.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts can double or even triple your gift to UTPA. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company does, visit your company’s human resources department and contact us.

Payroll Deduction for Faculty and Staff

If you are a UTPA employee you can give through payroll deduction.  Many faculty and staff members choose this method of giving for its ease and practicality. Contact us to learn how to set this up.
