Annual Giving


Donate Now


Whether you are new to Huston-Tillotson or a longtime friend of the university, you know that our outstanding students and faculty are the heart and soul of our school community.

Our deep-rooted mission and strong values serve as the springboard for the intellectual growth and development of all members of the Ram Family. Huston-Tillotson University offers academic and extra-curricular programs that prepare and nurture our uniquely individual students to become diverse scholars and leaders of the “genius generation.”

But we cannot do it alone; we greatly depend on the support of the entire Ram Family to continually strengthen our school. A gift to the Annual Fund of $5,000 or more closes the gap between tuition and the true cost of educating students with the most financial need. We are striving for full support from our alumni and friends to make a Huston-Tillotson University education accessible to students from all backgrounds. And that is why we ask that if you make only one gift to Huston-Tillotson each year, please support the Ram Annual Fund, first!


Our Students Directly Benefit from Your Gift

Like most independent schools, Huston-Tillotson University tuition does not cover the total expense of educating a student and providing enhanced academic, athletic and fine arts programs. A gift to the Ram Annual Fund of $5,000 or more closes the gap between tuition and the true cost of educating students with the most financial need.

When the full school community rallies together to support the Ram Annual Fund, we are able to fulfill our historic mission and vision of providing a diverse study body with access to a Huston-Tillotson education.
