Annual Fund Donation

Make a difference

The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is the foundation of Huston-Tillotson University’s fundraising program. Its monies are unrestricted and used to meet the University’s most crucial needs annually. The Annual Fund supports the mission of the University by introducing alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff to the importance of giving yearly to enhance programs and assist in the daily operations of the University. 

Planned Giving

Planned gifts give back, allowing you to take sizable income, capital gains, and estate deductions on your taxes. They can provide income for you and your family for life. In addition, planned gifts can be much larger than other gifts, so you can leave a legacy that fits your philanthropic goals.


Establish a Scholarship

Institutional Advancement and Alumni Affairs staffs are available to work with you to define and establish scholarship funds. With your instructions we will compose a letter that will provide the University with specific direction to administer the fund in accordance with your intentions.

Class Reunion Gift Campaign

Your class reunion is a very special time – a time to return to campus, reunite with old friends and perhaps reconnect with a favorite professor. It is a time to remember your earlier years and reflect on everything that you have gained from your time spent in the classrooms, on the playing fields and in the residence halls of the University. It is a time to come back and most importantly, an opportunity to give back!



When you make purchases from the HT bookstore not only do you show your Ram pride, but a percentage of the proceeds are returned to HT. Visit our bookstore to purchase alumni paraphernalia and other items to show your school spirit. 


Naming Opportunities 

Merger Walkway

An array of possibilities exists at Huston-Tillotson University for donors interested in naming opportunities. A named gift opportunity sends a strong message to our students and campus visitors. Review our existing naming opportunities. Donors are encouraged to work with Institutional Advancement to create other naming opportunities that might be more closely aligned with their special areas of interest. All namings are subject to Huston-Tillotson University President and Board of Trustees approvals.
