Ways to Give

Why give? With your support this year, we can do even more to champion the University of Texas at Austin, and to organize alumni and friends into a formidable network to change the world

Give to Annual Giving  Give to Scholarships 

The Texas Exes' mission is to champion the University of Texas at Austin and organize alumni and friends into a formidable network to change the world. 

Thank you to the 3,000 donors whose generosity last year provided the annual resources needed to further our work in the areas of student success, alumni engagement, advocacy, and communicating the value of the university. With their support, last year we were able to engage alumni with more than 1,200 events through our chapters and networks; award students with a record total of $3.45 million in scholarships; gather hundreds of Longhorns and Aggies at the Capitol to advocate for the state’s top-tier institutions; welcome over 850 new students through Camp Texas; and speak to alumni 365 days a year through social media platforms, the Alcalde magazine, and online news shows. 

With your support this year, we can do even more. Here is what we want to achieve:


Student Success

 Increase scholarships by 6 percent to award approximately $3.7 million to 675 fellow Longhorns.



Alumni Engagement

Increase the impact of our chapters and networks worldwide by creating more diverse and meaningful engagement opportunities.



Increase alumni participation in legislative activities, such as Orange & Maroon Legislative Day, and involve alumni in protecting the university's Tier-One status all year long.

Engage alumni on the national level in legislative activities, such as our first annual Longhorns on the Hill event in Washington, D.C.


Communicate the Value of UT

Bring the most compelling news about alumni and the university to an even broader audience.


Your contribution to the Texas Exes is 100 percent tax-deductible.

While we work closely with the University of Texas at Austin, the Texas Exes is an independent 501c3 that is not part of the university, the UT System, or the state. We rely on individual donors, corporate support, membership, and other income to serve students and alumni. This income supports scholarships, programming, endowments, and operating budgets.

Immediate Need

The Association is seeking gifts to the enrichment fund for our Forty Acres Scholars Program. The Program Enrichment Fund directly supports our scholars in areas such as study abroad, leadership development, cultural and social enrichment, networking opportunities, and out-of-state student expenses. This funding is for immediate use. A minimum gift of $1,000 to the Program Enrichment fund qualifies you as a member of the Forty Acres Society. Members of the Forty Acres Society receive exclusive invitations to events featuring university faculty, administration, and coaches throughout the year. You will gain access to networking opportunities with other alumni who share an interest in bringing the best and brightest students to UT. You'll also interact with the next generation of world-changers, our esteemed Forty Acres Scholars.
