Why should I give back?

Reflect on your time at UH. Many of the memories you hold dear were made possible by geneours alumni and friends of UH. Their unwavering support passed down what makes the cougar experience so special, such as the MD Anderson Library for late-night study sessions and the brand new Student Center for catching up with fellow classmates.

Beyond improvements to campus, giving to UH also funds scholarships, creates knowledge via new technology and allows the University to attract and retain world-class faculty. Your participation also helps sustain the reputation of UH, and in turn, strengthens the value of your degree. The giving participation rate is a factor in our U.S. News & World Report rankings.
