You make Texas great

Longhorn Loyal honors the most dedicated supporters of The University of Texas at Austin. Donors who have made gifts in each of the three most recent fiscal years (September 1 – August 31) receive a membership to honor their loyalty and recognize their giving leadership. Longhorn Loyal members have collectively given more than $2.2 billion to UT in their lifetimes — an incredible show of support that makes the university’s contributions to education, research and service a reality.

Thank you for your loyalty.

Margaret Berno

I support UT because I want to ensure future Longhorns have the same opportunities and enrichment that made my four years on campus so transformative. The generosity of fellow Texas Exes was a cornerstone of my experience on the Forty Acres and I want to pay that forward.”

You know the old phrase ‘we stand on other people’s shoulders’? We want to be those shoulders for someone. We are the first generation in our family to graduate from a university, so we feel a responsibility to support the next generation of students.”
