Employee Giving

As a faculty or staff member at UTC, you are one of the University’s greatest resources and most passionate supporters. Your everyday dedication, time and talent to UTC and its students shape our community. You can now expand your support by donating a meaningful gift each year. 

You can make a gift to any fund established with the UC Foundation – the philanthropic arm for UTC, including endowed scholarships, specific sports, academic departments, colleges or divisions. 

Giving to UTC is Simple

Set up a payroll deduction to make your annual donation through installments.

Make a one-time gift. You can pay by credit or debit card, PayPal or Venmo thorough our secure online giving page.

Support UTC on Mocs Give Day – the first Tuesday in October. Find special matches and challenges to make your gift go further just by giving on Mocs Give Day.

My scholarships have helped me perform at my best. Each donor saw something in me and made an investment that has proved to produce abundant fruits, and I cannot thank them enough.
