#allinforUT - May 27, 2020

Many of you have reached out and asked how you can support UT's Spartan scholars. While we couldn't have planned for our current situation, we can plan for the impact. It is in this spirit that we've chosen to move forward with Give Day on Wednesday, May 27, 2020. 

In anticipation of an increased request for scholarship assistance from UT students, all gifts to the  Annual Scholarship Fund will be  matched 2:1, thanks to a Board of Trustees challenge gift.

Benefiting scholarships include the  Presidential, Dean, Minaret and Spartan scholarships. Your $25 gift could be matched with $50 for an impact of $75 to benefit our students.

We hope that you join our team and go #allinforUT on WednesdayMay 27, 2020

Don't want to wait until then? Starting on May 21, 2020, you can donate and have it count toward the matching gifts.

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, add up to have an enormous impact and show how we are all in for UT no matter where we are in the world.

#allinforUT, originally scheduled for April 21, 2020, was postponed as our alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends respond to the COVID-19 outbreak.
