More UH alumni than ever before show their loyalty to their alma mater through an annual gift. Alumni contributions to UH totaled $6.8 Million in fiscal year 2010, ranging in size from $1 to more than $1 Million. Alumni giving supports everything from computers in the library to student scholarships and new buildings.
As a graduate of the University of Houston, your gift has special meaning. Among other values, your gift:
Sustains and supports people and programs. 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.
Strengthens the value of your degree. Alumni giving is a criterion used in the national rankings of colleges and universities. Your gift publicly demonstrates your pride in the University of Houston and your investment in its future. As the university's recognition increases, so does the value of your degree.
Influences opinion-makers. The percentage of alumni who give to the University of Houston is also a factor when corporations and foundations award grants, when high school seniors and parents evaluate colleges and universities, and when other donors prepare to make their philanthropic decisions.
