Support a Healthy Tomorrow
UT Health Science Center is dedicated to benefiting human health and improving quality of life. As a university medical center, we achieve this by:

Annual giving is essential in enabling UT Health Science Center to advance its work in many different treatment and research areas, giving our physicians, scientists and staff the resources and flexibility needed to quickly respond to critical patient needs and new initiatives.
Unrestricted gifts to UT Health Science Center are scrupulously directed to the areas of greatest need and the highest priorities throughout the institution.
Annual gifts are critical in advancing our continuing mission as the East Texas region’s only academic medical institution and health science research center. Philanthropic support for our Signature Programs is vital as state funds only provide 33% of our overall budget.
