Dean's Excellence Fund

Give every year. Impact every day.

Giving to the Dean’s Excellence Fund allows the college to have a direct and immediate impact on UH students and programs beyond public funding. These gifts ensure support for the area most needed - whether toward student scholarships, recruitment and retention of key faculty, research, classroom technology and so much more, your gift to the Dean’s Excellence Fund provides resources with few restrictions and therefore have great flexibility in their application.

As UH continues to grow and push boundaries as a Tier One university, it is crucial that its community and alumni show support. Demonstrated widespread annual support from alumni is one marker of a top-tier research university. Increased private giving also demonstrates the partnership between the community and the university.

Your gifts to the Andy and Barbara Gessner College of Nursing Dean’s Excellence Fund allows the college to apply the funds where the need is greatest. What's more, many donors can double or even triple their gifts through corporate matching programs.

All annual gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Make your gift online now! For more information, contact LaDawn Fletcher, Development Officer for the Gessner College of Nursing, at 713.743.2581, or email
