Life Members Matter

From our famous car decals and keytags to our official University of Texas Class Rings, Texas Exes members are UT’s most loyal supporters. (No joke! More than 60% of donors to the university are members of the Texas Exes.)

Every membership makes a difference, but Life Membership makes a difference forever. Ninety percent of Life Member dues are placed into an endowment that powers the work of your alumni association in perpetuity.


The Legends Who Are Life Members

To be a Life Member of the Texas Exes is to be in the same group as some of UT Austin’s greats: head football coach Darrell K Royal (Life Member No. 87), Lady Bird Johnson (Life Member No. 259), and Academy Award-winner Matthew McConaughey (Life Member No. 33,731), among many others.
