Endowed Excellence Funds

$50,000 and up

These endowments support excellence in specific or general programs throughout the McCombs School of Business. You can choose to support the area in which you earned your degree or another program that interests you, and your gift will allow academic leaders to address ever-changing needs, demands, and opportunities as they arise.

“In a small way, endowments are key to the community as they underpin the financial base of the school, which ensures that the school provides an exemplary education. The community benefits by graduating students that are able to enter the workforce and ultimately build businesses and hire employees, who in turn pay taxes and support the community.”

Though started by Dean Thomas Gilligan, the McCombs Parents Council remains a top-priority for Dean Jay Hartzell, “I am continually grateful for the support, in both time and treasure, that we receive from our McCombs Parents Council members. The Texas BBA Program directly benefits from their involvement, which is vital to the success of the programs we offer our undergraduate students”, he said.
