Development and Gift Planning Services


Did you know?

Giving makes us feel happy. A happiness expert (yes, there are such titles) and professor of psychology at the University of California, Riverside, has found that generosity helps unlock a potential for joy — and that's a kind of positive energy that spreads.

Read about the link between giving and happiness and listen to Professor Sonja Lyubomirsky as she describes a study that helped reveal this cheerful news.

Welcome to the Office of Development and Gift Planning Services. Our office has a two-fold mission:

In Development Services, we seek 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.
