Give to the Alumni Endowed Excellence Funds and Foster the Legacy of Your McCombs Degree!
The success of the McCombs School is founded on the energy and generosity of our entire community of supporters. We are proud of the alumni, friends, students, corporate partners, and foundations who dedicate their time, vision, and resources to ensure excellence in business education year after year.
With more than 85,000 alumni, gifts of any size make a huge collective impact. Whether you give to the area of greatest need at the school or designate your gift to support a department, program, or center of excellence, your annual gifts are put to use right away.
The McCombs School fiscal year begins September 1 and ends August 31. Your gifts to the McCombs School are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Unrestricted annual gifts to the Alumni Annual Fund help McCombs prepare students for positions of leadership. Gifts to the Fund help students in countless ways - funding scholarships, career services and improved facilities and technology.

The Corporate and Foundation Relations team facilitates mutually beneficial relationships between corporate and foundation partners and the McCombs School, connecting companies with students, faculty, research centers, executive education and additional priority initiatives.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please visit the university's matching gift search page.
If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to The University of Texas at Austin may be doubled or possibly tripled. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
Often described as “gifts that keep on giving,” endowments leverage your gift across time and provide tangible, lasting benefits. The UT System invests your funds, using distributions from the investment for the purpose you wish to support – financial aid or merit awards for students, faculty support or research productivity, academic programs, or renovation or operation of facilities such as classrooms and centers of excellence for targeted curriculum and research initiatives. A portion of the total income and capital gains is reinvested each year, enabling the endowment to continue to grow and provide a predictable, stable stream of income over time.

You may be able to double or even triple your gift to UT. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company does, check our matching service or visit your company’s human resources department.
