I Love UTSA
I Love UTSA is an 11-day giving campaign that runs from Monday, April 10, 2017 through Friday, April 21, 2017. UTSA’s eight colleges, Student Affairs and UTSA Libraries will campaign for the “love” of alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends in the form of donations.
Two prizes, sponsored by the UTSA Alumni Association, will be awarded to the college/unit who increases their alumni giving by the highest rate and the college/unit who surpasses their I Love UTSA goal by the highest rate. Give today to help Student Affairs win!
1st place - Highest alumni participation rate increase
$3,500 additional gift to the college from the UTSA Alumni Association
2nd place - College/Unit that exceeds their goal by the largest percentage
$1,500 additional gift to the college from the UTSA Alumni Association
Make a donation of any size to Student Affairs today in support of students. On behalf of the students and staff of Student Affairs, thank you in advance for your support in this campaign.
What will my gift be used for?
The Student Affairs Transformation Fund allows donors to provide exceptional opportunities for students and staff at UTSA. Every year there are many programs, events and professional development opportunities that our students and staff are unable to take advantage of due to budget restraints. This fund allows staff and students to apply for small grants (less than $2,500.00) to help off-set the cost of transformational experiences that otherwise may not happen. A donation of any size makes a big difference.
How much do I need to give to make a difference?
This campaign is not about dollars—it’s about donors showing their love for UTSA! Whether you’re an alum, a faculty or staff member, or a student, your gift matters; we want everyone to show us what they love most about UTSA.
To make your gift, click on the orange “Make A Gift” button and manually enter the amount you would like to donate.
How was each goal determined?
Each college/division goal was calculated the same way. To set the goals fairly, we looked at the average number of donors a week and then multiplied that number by six to make it challenging.
What if I don’t feel comfortable giving online?
We encourage you to give online so we can count on your support right away! There are other ways to participate:
1. Send a check payable to The University of Texas at San Antonio and post-marked by April 21, 2017 to count toward the competition – Annual Giving, The University of Texas at San Antonio, One UTSA Circle, San Antonio, TX 78249
2. Stop by in person – UTSA Main Campus, North Paseo Building 5.102
3. Give us a call – 210.458.5054
4. When you receive a call from one of our students at the Phonathon
I already gave. Do I still count?
All gifts made toward the colleges from September 1, 2016 to present have already counted. Gifts made before September 1, 2016 do not count toward the college/division goal. Any gifts made between April 10, 2017 and April 21, 2017 (including post-marked) will count toward the campaign.
If you made a gift to another area of the university, such as Athletics, it will not count toward the campaign, however gifts made to departments or scholarships within your college will be counted.
Is my gift tax deductible?
Yes! Gifts made online receive an immediate e-mail receipt. All other gifts will receive a tax receipt via mail following the campaign.
