Endowment and Fellowship Gifts
Endowments and fellowships are the gifts that keep on giving. Endowments serve to support Pharm.D students, while fellowships provide graduate student support. The funds are invested by the UT System, and the interest generated by that investment is used for the purpose you wish to support: financial aid, merit awards for students, professional development stipends, support for faculty, research, etc. A portion of the income is re-invested each year, enabling the endowment to continue to grow and provide a predictable, stable stream of income over time. Endowment gifts can be made through pledges and fulfilled over a 5-year period.
The UT College of Pharmacy is grateful to receive endowed gifts from its generous supporters. Read about how just a few of our friends, including Marina Sifuentes, Tom Garcia, and the Delgado Family, chose to establish an endowment and make a broad and long-lasting impact on generations to come.
You can make a lasting impact to the growth and future of the UT College of Pharmacy through financial or estate planning, otherwise know as making a planned gift. Planned gifts not only provide financial support to an area of higher education that is meaningful to you, but donors may also benefit from this type of estate planning. Contact Susan Brown if you are interested in making a planned gift or visit UT’s planned giving site for more information.
Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated securities and closely held stock can be extremely beneficial — both to you and to UT Austin. You may receive an income-tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities, as well as reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes. Gifts of stock and mutual funds are coordinated by the UT System Office of Development and Gift Planning Services. Proceeds from the sale of these assets are directed to any program you wish. Please contact Charlotte Hambrick
at 512-499-4300 for more information.
