Ways to Give

Moody College of Communication’s success depends on the generosity of our entire community of supporters. We are proud of our alumni and friends who dedicate their time, vision and resources to ensure excellence in communication education year after year. With more than 40,000 alumni, even small gifts make a huge collective impact on Moody College. The amount of your gift is less important than including your alma mater as part of your annual charitable giving. Gifts to Moody College of Communication are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law

Our student support endowments provide direct financial aid to our students in the form of scholarships. Each endowed scholarship has the ability to award funds to multiple students per semester, providing meaningful assistance that allows awardees to focus on their studies and achieve the excellence that makes Moody College rank higher every year. Student support endowments exist in perpetuity. Each year a portion of the total income is reinvested so that Moody College can continue to make awards to deserving students. 

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 Moody College

 By lending your name or the name of another individual, group, or business, you become a part of the legacy of Moody College of Communication. Named programs offer significant support for important Moody College initiatives, including the Dean's Innovation Fund. The college has a number of opportunities for naming buildings, outdoor structures and other facilities, as well as academic and major college units.
