UHD Annual Giving Invites YOU to Give to Gators Campaign
By Sandra Jacobson, Manager Annual Giving
Thank you for all you do for the University of Houston-Downtown!
Your hard work every day — along with that of your fellow faculty and staff — is why we continue to grow and earn more accolades. Gator faculty and staff are consistent and outstanding supporters of UHD and our students.
Will you go one step even further to participate in the Give To Gators Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign this year? Over the past decade, generous faculty and staff have donated over $500,000 to initiatives throughout UHD. Together, we make an extraordinary impact.
Please join your colleagues by making your gift or pledge to the department, program or scholarship where you would like to make your impact and invest at whatever level is possible and appropriate.
The Give to Gators website has more information about how, where and why you should give. You can give by payroll deduction (login with your network username and password), online with your credit or debit card, or by cash or check with this form sent to University Advancement (OMB S990).
However you choose to give, please make your commitment today!
