Annual Giving

Every year, generous people like you ‒ alumni, friends, parents, students, faculty and staff ‒ show their support for UTSA by making gifts. Your investment reflects a bold belief that higher education and research changes lives and betters the world.
Annual and recurring gifts enable UTSA to provide opportunities that tuition or state funding alone cannot. Every gift, no matter how large or small, is important. Annual giving donations from many people are often combined to do big things, such as fund scholarships, support student success programs, equip classrooms and labs, or hire thought-leaders to teach here.
Whether you give to the UTSA Fund ‒ to provide support where it is most needed ‒ or you direct your gift to something specific, like to a College, a Crowdfunding Project or a program you feel passionate about, your support matters and makes a difference.
We are excited to count you among our donors who are strengthening Roadrunner Nation
For more information, please Email us or call (210) 458-4130.

Faculty & Staff Giving

Gifts can be directed toward any area of the university, including your college or department. Some of the areas that benefit from Faculty and Staff Giving include graduate and undergraduate scholarships, student and faculty recruitment, research, and a myriad of other enriching experiences for our students including study abroad. You can MAKE A GIFT online or set up installments. Simply download and complete the payroll deduction form and send to the Office of Annual Giving.

Other Ways to Give

Matching gifts can double or triple your gift to UTSA and you are recognized for both your gift and any resulting matches! Over 1,000 companies sponsor matching gift programs and some companies will even match gifts from retired employees, part-time employees, and spouses.


If your company matches gifts, you may be able to access the forms directly through your search. Follow the directions and UTSA will secure your employer's matching gift for you.

If your company uses a paper matching gift form, please complete it and send it to:

UTSA's Tax ID number is 74-1717115

Gifts of products and services, as well as other assets, are extremely beneficial to our students and faculty at UTSA. Typical in-kind gifts include software licenses, historic books and papers, and travel vouchers.

As a state government agency, UTSA is eligible for a grant from Donor Advised Funds. Grants should be made payable to The University of Texas at San Antonio and mailed as follows: UTSA Gift Services, One UTSA Circle, San Antonio, TX 78249. Use UTSA’s Tax ID Number 74-1717115.

Create a trust that can be revoked or changed during your lifetime that directs the disposition of your assets, including charitable gifts. A revocable living trust can minimize the cost and delays associated with probate, facilitate asset transfer, provide privacy and, unlike a will, ensure asset management continuity in the event of disability.

Gifts of long term, highly appreciated securities are the most common type of outright property gift. Typically, individual stocks are given; however, bonds or mutual fund shares are also attractive gift options. Outright gifts of securities can be made quickly and these gifts let you do more with your gift because of the very attractive tax benefits. 

For appreciated property held long term, the full fair market value of securities given to charity is generally deductible for itemizers. For example, if you give shares of stock that are now worth $10,000, you can deduct the full amount of the gift on your income tax return (subject to certain income limitations), even though you may have bought the stock for $1,000.

A charitable gift of securities held long term is not considered a sale of the securities and does not generate any capital gains tax, no matter the amount of the gain. This is a valuable tax incentive provided by Congress to encourage gifts of appreciated property. The result: a charitable deduction is allowed for capital gains that would have been taxed. And, if we sell the securities, we keep every penny of the proceeds since we are tax exempt. To make your gift, transfer the stock to us - do not sell the stock. 

Please give your advisor this information to give stock to UTSA.
