Ways to Give

* Scholarships held at the UH Foundation

The Annual Fund at the University of Houston is a vehicle for providing support for colleges, departments and programs across the campus. Alumni are encouraged to support their academic college. Within the Cullen College of Engineering, annual fund gifts allow us to fund scholarships, special projects, equipment and supplies.

May I direct my Annual Fund gift?
Absolutely. Your gift can be designated for any department within the Cullen College of Engineering. Your gift may also be designated for general support of the college through the "Dean's Excellence Fund," or for general support of scholarships through the "Dean's Scholarship Fund."

How can I make a gift to the Annual Fund?
Most Annual Fund gifts come in the form of a check or credit card payment. Donors to the Annual Fund can submit gifts online using our secure website. 

How can my gift make a difference compared to the large gifts the college already receives?
Annual Fund gifts have a tremendous impact because they allow the college to cover a broad range of immediate needs. Major gifts are usually designated for a specific purpose and are often established as endowments that provide long-term income from their earnings.

An unrestricted gift is a gift that is given without any restrictions on its use. Unrestricted gifts provide the college the flexibility it needs to place resources where they are most needed or where opportunities are greatest (such as student aid, faculty support, new initiatives, supplies and equipment).

Through corporate matching, charitable contributions can be doubled or even tripled. The process is as simple as completing a standard matching gift form from the employer and mailing it with a gift to the university. Contact your Human Resources Department to find out if your company or organization has a matching gift program and matching gift forms. Mail your gift with the form to

University of Houston
P.O. Box 988
Houston, Texas 77001-0988

The proceeds from the match will be placed toward the same program as the original gift. For further information, please contact the Matching Gift Coordinator Marlene Denby at 713-743-8910.
