What is #allinforUT?
#allinforUT is UT’s annual give day devoted to giving back and showing how we can support the University. As a private University, UT depends on the philanthropic support of the community it serves. Because the University cannot be sustained by tuition alone, all donations are greatly appreciated and will be used to continue a tradition of academic excellence. All gifts, regardless of size, make a difference. Together, we can positively impact UT now and for years to come. This April, join us and go #allinforUT.
