Donate Now to Help CVAD Students

The rapid changes in our students’ academic experiences have forced the university to adjust in ways we could have never anticipated. Now, more than ever, we value the importance of standing UNiTed and supporting those in need. We understand that this is an unsettling time for everyone, and we sincerely thank you for your desire to give back to our students and the university.

We have identified two funds that will best serve the College of Visual Arts and Design during this time of need. You can support these efforts by making a gift.

The College of Visual Arts and Design Scholarship Fund

More than 75 percent of UNT students received financial aid in 2019. During these times of uncertainty, scholarships make the difference in whether or not our students will be able to continue pursuing higher education, and will truly make a significant impact on the lives of our students and their families.

The Dean’s Excellence Fund

The Dean’s Excellence Fund also provides immediate, essential support to our students. This fund serves as a vital resource to help our students and campus respond to opportunities and challenges as they occur. When you support the Dean’s Excellence Fund, you support the strategic vision of the college by allowing the Dean to have flexibility in directing the use of resources to the priorities of the college during this difficult time.

Together, we can serve as the bright light our students need. Together we will soar above these challenges.

Other Ways to Give

Annual Giving

When you give to the college annually, you make a difference in the lives of students, faculty, and staff who study, teach, and work to strengthen the college. These collective acts of generosity help ensure that a UNT education remains affordable and within reach for our deserving students.

Visit the Annual Recurring Gift to CVAD web page available through the Division of University Advancement.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contribution made by their employees. To make your gift go even further, find out if your company has a matching gift policy by searching for your employer's name.

Learn more on the Matching Gifts web page.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will take care of the rest.

Estate/Planned Gifts

Donors who choose to establish planned gifts to benefit the college help secure the future of UNT.

Working with our planned-giving experts, you can choose to make an outright gift or defer your giving through a bequest. You can even take advantage of a charitable gift annuity or other life-income gifts that enable you to establish a legacy now and still provides you with an income during your lifetime.
