UT’s revenue comes from three main sources: state support, tuition and philanthropy. State funding makes up about 20% of UT’s revenue. Private support is the primary source of funding that recruits new talent, makes innovation possible and drives a vibrant future for Texas. In fact, donor support has long been a cornerstone of UT’s success — donors gave the original Forty Acres, contributed the funds that built Texas Memorial Stadium, invested in faculty endowments in the 1990s and realized transformational new endeavors like Dell Medical School.
