Ways to give to the UT Foundation on behalf of UT Institutions:
Some entities are restricted by their governing documents from making charitable gifts directly to University of Texas Institutions. Examples of these include some foundations, donor advised funds, estates, IRA distributions and the company match portion of matching gifts. If a gift to a University of Texas Institution must be made to a 501 (c) ( 3) organization the University of Texas Foundation, a public charity, may accept those gifts on behalf of the Institution. The gift will be forwarded to the Institution in full.
