University offers tips for year-end planning and Giving Tuesday

Students sign a giant thank you card for Thanks Day in 2019.

DECEMBER 1, 2020 — Many UTSA faculty, staff, alumni and friends will make their final 2020 gifts to university programs, the UTSA Alumni Association and UTSA Athletics during the last few weeks of the year, including today: Giving Tuesday.

“Nationally, giving is traditionally highest during the months of November and December,” said Karl Miller-Lugo, vice president for development and alumni relations. “For some people it’s the deadline for tax purposes, but for most, they just feel a sense of being charitable during the holidays. We are certainly grateful for the support, especially this year, as we plan for a successful 2021.”


“We are certainly grateful for the support, especially this year, as we plan for a successful 2021.”

  • By credit card: Your online credit card gift must be made before 11:59 p.m. (Central time) on December 31, 2020. You are encouraged to make your gift on the UTSA Giving website so that it can be processed immediately as staff continues to work from home.
