As an annual campaign, "Partners" is a popular vehicle through which community friends, businesses provide vital funding as Partners of UT Permian Basin, and alumni support their alma mater.
The campaign provides critical support for a number of needs not funded by state appropriations, such as scholarships and intercollegiate athletics. Unlike endowments, which gradually generate funds, the actual amount of annual gifts is immediately available for use where it is needed most.
Donors may choose to make unrestricted gifts, which are directed to areas most appropriate by the University, or they may designate a specific program as a recipient. Some vital areas supported by the annual campaign are:
- Faculty support
- Building support
Donors to UT Permian Basin have fostered the phenomenal growth of the University over the past five years. The enrollment has had double-digit increases every year since 2001. The University serves students from 133 Texas counties, 36 states 20 foreign countries, and is comprised of almost 66 percent first-generation college students.
Gifts of all sizes are needed and appreciated and will be promptly acknowledged.
Gifts may be made "in memory of" an individual. The University will promptly acknowledge the gifts to the family members of the deceased. These contributions will appear in the "Memorials" section of the University newsletter.
Gifts In Honor
Gifts may also be made "in honor of" an individual and they will be acknowledged by UTPB to the honoree.
