Amplify Austin

Invest in HT’s Students on March 1-2

You can be a big part of a big event on March 1, beginning at 6 p.m.  Amplify Austin, an annual giving campaign sponsored by I Live Here I Give Here, gives you an opportunity to invest in Huston-Tilloston University’s (HT) students by donating through Amplify Austin at  For only 24 hours, beginning March 1 at 6 p.m. and ending March 2 at 6 p.m., you can make a big impact on our students.  

Amplify Austin Day offers an easy and fun way for you to make an online donation to Huston-Tillotson University; it becomes fun when you challenge your friends and family to match your gift.  Your gift will fund student leadership programs and scholarships to close the financial aid gap that often leaves students facing a mounting student loan debt.  As the cost of college has outpaced inflation and wages, we have entered a new chapter in our society where student borrowing is the primary way young people pay for college.  When students and their families are making decisions about where to apply to college, or whether to accept an offer of admission, we want them to know that Huston-Tillotson is an affordable choice.   Your gift, an investment, can make that happen. 

Huston-Tillotson, the oldest institution of higher education in Austin, is located in the “heart” of East Austin, and its “beat” can be heard through a famed choir, environment-conscious organization, “Green is the New Black,” and other community-driven organizations.  Our campus is home to Austin’s Earth Day, an Urban Health Expo, a Community Easter Egg Hunt, and other wonderful activities to which we open our beautiful campus.

Help HT fulfill its vision of a connected world where diversity of thought matters. On March 1 or 2, please go to and donate to this wonderful, historic institution! You will see a return on your investment, as we continue to prepare students to be competitive in Austin and a global economy. 

Thank You!
