ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar)- UT Permian Basin will hold their second Falcon Day of Giving Wednesday.

“We depend on the generosity from donors, alumni, staff, faculty, and the community to meet
the needs of our region and help our students. Investing in UT Permian Basin means investing
in the future of West Texas,” said UT Permian Basin Annual Giving Coordinator, Danielle

The 24-hour virtual giving event raised almost $200,000 in 2020 and was a big help to students as they navigated through the pandemic.

UTPB says funds raised will support the Student Emergency Fund, UTPB Pantry, General Scholarship fund or specific sports or educational departments. Donors can choose where they want their funds to go.

“The funds donated during Falcon Giving Day help provide students a sense of relief during
difficult times. Sometimes students just need a little extra money for meals or some financial
support to pay for one more class. Every dollar counts and makes a difference in our students’
lives,” Davila added.

Anyone wishing to give is encouraged to visit the Falcon Giving Day page for more details.
