FAQ: Gifts and Giving

  1. How many alumni give to Texas Law annually?

    For the 2013-14 fiscal year, Texas Law had an alumni participation rate of 16 percent. That rate is not competitive with our peer law schools nationally. Every gift is important because it increases our participation rate.

  2. Why is the participation rate important?

    The participation rate of a college's alumni is often used to indicate alumni satisfaction. In fact, organizations that rank colleges and universities, and many foundations that support them, consider alumni giving as the sole indicator of the satisfaction of former students with their education.
