When you give to your alma mater you:
- Sustain and supports people and programs. In an era of declining public funding for higher education, private giving can provide the margins of excellence that distinguish UNT programs from other schools and colleges.
- Strengthen the value of your degree. Alumni giving is a criterion used in the national rankings of colleges and universities. Your gift publicly demonstrates your pride in the UNT and your investment in its future. As the university's recognition increases, so does the value of your degree.
- Influence decision-makers. The percentage of alumni gifts can be a persuading factor for those with their eye UNT. Corporations and foundations often use this strategic measure when determining grant funding and awards. Prospective students and parents use it as a predictor of school spirit and alumni enthusiasm, and other donors often consider it when making philanthropic decisions.
