With more than 40,000 alumni, even small gifts make a huge collective impact on the Moody College. The amount of your gift is less important than including your alma mater as part of your annual charitable giving. Your gifts to the Moody College of Communication are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

For additional information on annual giving, please contact the Moody College's External Relations Office at (512) 475-9165.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest!

The Moody College of Communication relies on its many alumni and friends to maintain its stature as the largest, most diverse and finest communication program in the nation. Endowments established by friends of the Moody College are invested in perpetuity to support the four fundamental building blocks of all great educational institutions – students, faculty, programs and facilities.

Often described as "gifts that keep on giving," endowments leverage your gift across time and provide tangible, lasting benefits. The University of Texas System invests your funds, using distributions from the investment for the purpose you wish to support. A portion of the total income and capital gains is reinvested each year, enabling the endowment to continue to grow and provide a predictable, stable stream of income over time.

For additional information on endowments, contact the Moody College's External Relations Office at (512) 475-9165.



Planned giving is a great way to benefit the Moody College of Communication. Many people only associate this type of philanthropy with wills, estates and legacies, and may assume that the benefits flow in just one direction; however, a planned gift can be extremely flexible, include many tax advantages and provide you with reliable lifetime income, while ultimately directing valuable resources to the Moody College.
