When we think of our university days, we often think of those moments that stand out: the lifelong friends we made, the individual that encouraged us to attend, the family member that provided unconditional support, the professor whose class made a difference, the feeling of success as you walk across the stage to receive your degree, with your family members in the audience. Those are the moments that bring us back to The University of Texas-Pan American. You understand the significance of those moments and likely want others to experience the same kind of success. The Annual Giving Program gives you an opportunity to provide that same experience to others.
Through the generosity of loyal alumni, parents and friends, contributions are made to support the goals and needs of the University. Your gift, whether it is large or small, can touch the lives of our students and improve their educational experience.
Through the Annual Giving program, your gift will help others begin and continue their educational journey, opening doors to countless opportunities. This journey starts with you and your generous donation. Make it count!
Each fall and spring, students phone alumni, parents and friends to ask for financial support for the UTPA Annual fund. The phonathon provides for a personal interaction between current students, former students, parents and friends. During this contact, students inform alumni, parents and friends about new developments at the University and also provide information about successes from the different colleges on campus. Annual Phonathons serve as an extension of communication between the University, alumni and friends who now reside across the nation. Read more>>
Each year UTPA alumni, parents and friends are contacted through a direct mail campaign to inform them about the Annual Giving Program, its benefits and impact to the students, faculty and staff. The direct mail drive provides donors with an easy way to make a donation at their convenience.
