Annual Giving

Every year, the UTHealth Annual Fund increases philanthropic income for our university, helping us continue to be leaders in research, education and patient care.Susan Diederish, Director of Annual Giving

“Philanthropy of all kinds benefits our university and makes it possible for us to fulfill our mission to improve human health.”

The Annual Fund is fueled by the passion of our alumni, parents, faculty and friends. It has funded countless scholarships, allowing our students to fulfill their potential and make their dreams come true, and it provides a critical advantage to our top leadership. Our president and deans use these strategic resources to seize unexpected opportunities, from pursuing unanticipated developments in research to responding to matching grant challenges.

There are many ways in which philanthropy of all kinds benefits our university and makes it possible for us to fulfill our mission to improve human health. But the Annual Fund—which reaches the largest number of people and where giving typically begins—is the bedrock and the foundation.

We welcome your participation in the UTHealth Annual Fund. Your support touches the lives of patients, students and health professionals alike.
