UTHealth Houston Giving Day 2022

Thank you, UTHealth Houston community!

Your extraordinary generosity once again made UTHealth Houston Giving Day a huge success, breaking our previous records! In just 24 hours, you helped provide scholarships to help students achieve their dreams, advance outreach initiatives that connect our communities to compassionate care, and build on 50 years of improving health in Houston and beyond. 

Thank you for making a difference.

While this year’s Giving Day has ended, the many faces of UTHealth Houston will continue to celebrate our 50th anniversary throughout 2022. You can still get involved in improving health in our communities by making a gift through the banner at the top of the page.
