Why I Give header image


Our donors' generosity provides the means for the College of Natural Sciences to prepare future scientists, develop transformative educational programs, and conduct innovative research. Whether the gifts are public or private, large or small, or connected to a specific fundraising campaign, we are grateful to our community of supporters for their support in transforming lives. 

 

Why I Give to Support Graduate Students...

"With the caliber of research that happens at UT, it's possible to break new ground in understanding disease, to hopefully, one day, find a cure."
– Dr. John Doran, Microbiology, Chemistry, ‘69

 

Why I Give to Endow the Future of Undergraduates...

“Our whole family was blessed with scholarships and financial aid that enabled us to pursue our higher education degrees. We believe the University of Texas at Austin is the best place for one to learn how to think, innovate and understand one’s position in the greater community.”
– Alexander Chang

 

Why I Give to Scientific Research...

“Our goal is to be part of the team by doing what we can, when we can, to help those who are working to make great advances in understanding disease.”
– Edith Royal, The Darrell K Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer’s Disease

 

Why I Give to the Freshman Research Initiative (FRI)...

“Having been one of the young scientists paying my own way through school, I realize the need for support. FRI is an incredible opportunity for first year students to develop relationships—and create teams—with other scientists.”
– Stoney Barton, BA Chemistry, ‘97

It takes an entire community to educate a Longhorn. And for that, we designated Nov. 13, 2013, as Thanks Day to give a Texas-sized “Thank you” to everyone who makes a Longhorn education possible.

For current students, tuition and fees only go so far. In fact, if UT Austin operated on tuition and fees alone, classes would end by mid-November – just 11 weeks into the school year.

Thankfully, UT doesn’t just run on tuition and fees, which account for only 24 percent of the overall budget. The majority – 76 percent – comes from our supporters, who range from our family and friends to the state of Texas.
