Cash Gifts

Gifts made through currency, money orders, checks, credit cards and electronic transfer are considered cash gifts. This is one of the most common ways to give.


Cash gifts go to work immediately on the program or area you designate. Check with your employer as they may provide a matching gift benefit that can double or triple your impact.


Cash gifts can be made online, through a wire transfer or mailed to the UT Foundation.
