Making a gift to UTSA through your will or trust is simple. All estate gifts to UTSA are administered through The University of Texas System through the Board of Regents (UT System BOR). Share this wording with your attorney:

"I give, devise, and bequeath to the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System, 210 West 7th Street, Austin, TX 78701-2982, for the benefit of The University of Texas at San Antonio, a nonprofit institution located in Bexar County, Texas, _________ (the dollar sum, percentage of estate, property, securities, etc.) for use in (state the purpose for which you wish your bequest to be used, or indicate "general purposes").

To name UTSA as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment or bank account, life insurance policy, or other asset please use the following language: "UT System Board of Regents for the benefit of UTSA." If space is limited you can also say “UT System BOR fbo UTSA.”

The University of Texas System's federal tax ID number is 30-0710145.


If you have made a gift to UTSA by will or beneficiary designation please contact us today to share your plans. We would be honored to help you understand the best way to enhance your legacy through UTSA, while providing for your own planning needs. We also want to ensure that your intentions around your commitment will be carried through exactly as you envision and can help you create a Gift Agreement or other documentation to do so. The agreement can provide guidance to UTSA on your intended purpose of the gift without having to outline minor details directly in your will or trust document.
