2. Annual Giving
The success of the Moody College of Communication is founded 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 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.
3. Naming Opportunities - Invest in Innovation
By lending your name, the name of another individual, group, or business, you become a part of the strong tradition that is the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas at Austin. Named programs offer significant support for important Moody College initiatives, including the Dean's Innovation Fund.
The College has a number of intriguing opportunities for naming buildings, outdoor structures and other physical facilities, as well as academic and major College units.
4. Gift and Estate Planning
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.

Although the Moody College of Communication recently opened the new, state-of-the-art Belo Center for New Media, much work remains to bring our other buildings into the 21st century.
Communication Building A (CMA), originally designed to accommodate about 1,000 majors, is currently undergoing an upgrade and retrofit to renovate conference rooms, faculty offices, departmental research space and classrooms. Our production and teaching facilities in Communication Building B (CMB) are also receiving a complete upgrade to its electrical, lighting and structure, as well as technology for digital sound, digital recording and projection, and post-production facilities for student and faculty filmmakers.
