"I am so grateful that generous alumni, like you, help the University of Houston provide an exceptional higher education experience for students like me." - Tyson Adams, TierOne Scholar - UH Class of 2014
Great universities are built by great communities!
In these days of increased competition for scarce public funds, universities must increasingly rely on private gifts from alumni and friends to provide a margin of excellence.
Your choice to give is most important. When you make a gift to the University of Houston, you not only sustain the university's students and programs - you also express your confidence in the university and in its mission:
- Strengthening the value of a UH degree. Your gift demonstrates pride in UH and your investment in its future. And as the university's reputation increases by putting highly-qualified graduates to work and life-changing research into our communities, so does the value of a UH degree...even a degree earned 5 or 10 years ago - or more.
- Influencing opinion-makers. Your gift is a vote of confidence that becomes critical when we ask for corporate, foundation, and legislative support. The private support raised and number of alumni who give back to UH are factors corporations and foundations consider when they are preparing to award significant grants. Legislators are more likely to invest in public-private partnerships. They, like prospective UH students and parents, want to join a winning team.
