Ways to Give

WAYS TO GIVE

ENDOWMENTS
Funding an endowment is perhaps one of the most selfless and charitable acts of philanthropy an individual or a company can make. Endowments are a permanent investment in the School of Architecture. Donated funds are deposited with The University of Texas Investment Management Company (UTIMCO) and the principal is never spent. Rather, annual distributions from the earned interest are allocated to the donor’s indicated area of financial support, while the remaining interest is reinvested, thereby growing the fund from year to year.   LEARN MORE

FRIENDS OF ARCHITECTURE
Friends of Architecture is an annual giving program within the School of Architecture. Every annual donor to the School of Architecture is automatically a Friend. Your contribution is an investment in the success of the school, as it funds student activities,  outreach initiatives, publications, events, and opportunities that are not forecast in the school’s annual budget.   LEARN MORE

GIFT & ESTATE PLANNING
Never before have the conditions for making a planned gift been so favorable. Naming the School of Architecture as a beneficiary in your estate plans has allowed alumni and friends of this school to give back to the place they love.   LEARN MORE

GOLDSMITH SOCIETY
The Goldsmith Society is a special group of major donors who provide flexible, annual funding for student and faculty excellence. Members of the program make a multi-year pledge of support that allows the Dean to forecast unrestricted funds and confidently invest in important initiatives that enhance the quality of the school.   LEARN MORE

ADVISORY COUNCIL
The Advisory Council is an external support and advocacy group for The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. Members act as ambassadors for the school, serving as points of contact between the school, alumni, and the public at large. Members also play a vital role in helping us identify and obtain financial support for students, faculty, programs, and facilities.
