Give now

To celebrate and honor your time at UT, make a donation of $20.18 for the next four years and earn The University of Tampa red philanthropy cord to wear at commencement. As a symbol of your pride and gratitude for everything you have learned and achieved at UT, your donation can be your legacy to future Spartans!

How to Get a Red Cord

  • Go to the UT Class Campaign website.  
  • Select a contribution of $20.18 (or more).
  • Confirm the donation frequency is marked “annually until 2021.”
  • Once your donation is processed, you will receive instructions closer to commencement on where and when to pick up your cord. 

In order to receive a red philanthropy cord, donations must be made by Dec. 12, 2018. Donations made after that time are still welcome. All gifts make a difference. Even gifts that may seem small to you will combine with similar gifts from thousands of other students, alumni, parents and friends of the University to create a big impact on scholarships for incoming students.

Top 5 Reasons to Give

  1. Pay it forward! If every graduate made a recurring donation, we would raise more than $120,000 for scholarships for future Spartans!
  2. Set an example for future graduating classes.
  3. Every gift counts toward increasing the value of your degree.
  4. Your gift will be recognized at gradation when you wear your philanthropy cord with your cap and gown.
  5. You are a UT Spartan forever!
