Hardwired to Give
The impulse to give is a strong one; it's part of our DNA.
Every gift bestowed upon The University of Texas System or any of the 15 UT institutions reflects the donor's natural instinct to give.
Research confirms this, by the way. Listen to Human First Impulse is Generosity. 
Welcome to the Office of Development and Gift Planning Services. Our office has a two-fold mission:
- In Development Services , our mission is to garner support for the Chancellor’s initiatives. We also strive to build and strengthen relationships while promoting a greater understanding of the UT institutions' significant impact across the state.
- In Gift Planning Services , our mission is to support the UT institutions in their philanthropic endeavors and to provide expertise and assistance in managing complex gift opportunities. Our services include, but are not limited to, endowment administration and compliance, gift acceptance, naming opportunities, planned giving and records management.
