Since its founding in 1890, UNT has welcomed qualified students of all backgrounds who have a desire to learn and contribute to society. However, state and endowment funding covers only part of what UNT needs each year to continue offering outstanding programs, student aid and faculty development. The gap between a dean or director's budget line and the college or unit's actual need— that margin of excellence — is covered each year by Annual Fund gifts.
Gifts to the Annual Fund at UNT can support any of the university’s colleges, schools, units or programs. These gifts can be deployed at a moment’s notice to fund scholarships, strengthen academic programs, enrich co-curricular learning experiences, support research, sponsor the arts and ensure UNT has the resources it needs to continue its great work.
