Strategic gift planning can help you create a legacy for loved ones and the causes you hold dear, a legacy that may be far greater than you ever imagined.

Welcome to your resource for charitable gift planning!

It's no secret that the programs of The University of Texas-Pan American depend upon your goodwill. We've created this easy-to-understand Web site to help you dream a little, about our future and yours. There are many easy giving options from which you can choose—strategies that enhance your personal well being, as well as UTPA.

If you're not sure where to begin, try our Build Your Gift planner. By answering a few basic questions, this interactive tool steps you through the process of narrowing down your choices. It's fun and easy to use!

If you already have gift options in mind, click on Compare Gifts to see how your choices match up or click on eBrochures to request specific information on a planning option.

For more information, click above on the Gift and Estate Planning tab, which is right next to the Ways to Give tab, for our drop down menu.
