Giving to the School

Ways To Give

Credit Cards and Checks

Gifts can be made once or set up as pledges paid over time (monthly or annually).


Endowments are permanent funds that generate reliable income for the School. The principal is invested and never spent. Endowments can be named in honor of individuals and families and often support scholarships, specific programs or faculty.

Gift and Estate Planning

Planned gifts can be made through vehicles such as bequests, annuities and IRAs to make a meaningful legacy gift to the School of Social Work while meeting personal financial goals and needs.

Matching Gifts

You may be able to double or even triple your gift to the School.

Gifts of Stock

By making a gift of appreciated stock to the School, you can avoid capital gains tax as well as take a charitable deduction.

UT Payroll Deduction

UT employees can give to the School through payroll deduction.
