In an effort to streamline the estate and trust administration process, the Office of Gift Administration, Compliance and Advancement Services will take care of the administrative back office details so that the campuses can focus on working with donors.

Accordingly, our office has been designated exclusive authority by the Board of Regents to handle all matters related to bequests and charitable trust distributions benefiting all UT institutions. Once informed of a charitable bequest or trust interest, the campus should alert our office and we will serve as the liaison between the estate attorney, executor, administrator, or trustee and the UT institution and ensure that the campus receives the gift the decedent or settlor intended and that all forms and acknowledgements are completed.

For more information or assistance, please contact Hannah Mindeman Shuman, Associate Director for Gift Administration, at 512-852-3238.
