The Christmas season offers the perfect opportunity to give in ways large and small that truly make a difference. What better way to celebrate this spirit than with the gift of knowledge?

Your gift to the University of the Incarnate Word helps ensure its legacy of excellence in education, and its place as a hub of growth and innovation. The generosity of alumni, parents, employees and other members of the UIW community make positive, lasting impacts on students who then go on to better the world.

Fund the Future of UIW
A gift to the Annual Fund empowers the University to develop exciting programs, foster important research and award crucial financial aid. Because of your gift, part of tomorrow’s progress can be made today.

Pull Together
Corporations and groups can also help the University realize its goals. Company and individuals who donate $1,000 or more earn the Associate Level designation. Members of this special group are stewards of success.

Support Deserving Scholars
Gifts to the Annual Scholarship Fund are life changing for those students who have demonstrated academic achievement but who might not otherwise be able to fund a first-rate education.

Set Your Gift in Stone
Gifts to UIW help strengthen its foundations. Now, you can demonstrate your support and see your name among other donors on the Cardinal Walk of Pride located outside the new Student Engagement Center. Gifts of $250 receive an engraved 8-inch by 4-inch brick, and gifts of $1,000 are denoted by 12-inch by 12-inch engraved pavers.

Join the Community
Make the commitment to include UIW every holiday season. Young alumni who give back to their alma mater for consecutive years are honored with Circle of G.O.L.D (or graduates of the last decade) designation. The 1881 Society celebrates loyal alumni donors who have given consistently, for more than two years in a row.
