At The University of Texas-Pan American, the generosity of alumni and friends is making a major – and positive – impact on the students, faculty and programs that are fortunate enough to be beneficiaries of gifts to the UTPA Foundation from individuals, corporations, foundations and other organizations.

Recognition Societies

Whether your gift to the UTPA Foundation is an annual, endowed or planned gift, we want to make sure that you get the recognition you deserve. Donors to the Foundation and to the University may qualify for membership in the following organizations, both of which include such benefits as invitations to members-only events and special University communications. 

President’s Circle

The President’s Circle at The University of Texas-Pan American is truly that – a “circle” of very special friends who are dedicated to ensuring a bright future for the University while at the same time giving the gift of education to the many talented students who choose to study here.

Heritage Society

The Heritage Society is an honorary association of generous, forward-thinking friends and alumni whose planned gifts have already been received or will someday accrue to The University of Texas-Pan American or the UTPA Foundation.
