Your Gift Can Help!

At UTCVM we are all about animal, human and public health. Animals are our companions, are part of our food source, and are significant indicators of environmental processes. Animals are more important than ever to human well-being, health and happiness and to our nationís economy. Our role at the UT College of Veterinary Medicine is to meet future needs created by the interdependence of humans and animals and to ensure the quality of animal health care and scientific investigation essential to animal and human welfare.

We invite you to partner with us to help provide scholarships to educate the next generations of veterinary professionals and to meet the rising cost of a veterinary education; to purchase specialized, contemporary equipment for our four hospitals (companion animal, exotics, equine and farm animal); to expand and renovate our hospitals; to help perform clinical trials to develop new treatments and improve the quality of life for animals; to help us recruit and retain the best faculty; and to help us provide for everything needed for excellence in teaching, research, and service.

Private support provides a significant portion of the collegeís annual budget. Greater needs exist than we can fully fund without private gifts. Each private gift represents potential. We invite you to review our directory of gift funds and select one or more for your investment in the future of veterinary medicine at UT. Undesignated gifts also may be made, allowing the college to use your gift in the area of greatest need. I promise you that we will use your gift purposefully and as designated.

Thank you for taking the time to consider supporting the UT College of Veterinary Medicine. Like you, we love our animals whether they are large or small.
