Annual Giving

What is 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.

The Office of Institutional Advancement is using the thermometer on this page to monitor our fundraising progress. The more you give, the higher the mercury rises! Check the page regularly to measure our success. Thank you for your support of HT.


Matching Gifts

Many alumni and friends can increase the impact of their contributions to Huston Tillotson University by taking advantage of a matching-gift opportunity. Many corporations offer their employees the benefit of a matching gift program. If you or your spouse works for a matching-gift employer, you may be eligible to have all or a portion of your gifts to HT matched. These matching funds increase the positive impact that your contributions have on our students.

To initiate a matching gift, complete your employer’s matching gift form and send it along with your gift to Huston-Tillotson University. Institutional Advancement staff will complete the form, certifying that the University is eligible to participate in your company’s matching program and that it received your gift. The University will then send the form to your employer, who will verify eligibility and send the matching funds to the University.

All corporate matching programs have their own policies; therefore, you should make inquiries with your employer’s personnel department to see if your gift qualifies for a corporate match.

Unless they request anonymity, all supporters are recognized on our giving clubs annual donors’ list published in the President’s annual report and RAM Magazine.
