Support UT Elementary, Neighborhood Longhorns During 40 for Forty!

image of posterIt’s that time of year! 40 Hours for the Forty Acres, the annual university-wide fundraising event, is upon us.  From April 12-13, donors will have 40 hours to make a contribution to an important cause here in the DDCE and across the university.

All Longhorns — students, alumni, faculty and staff alike — are encouraged to participate. Large or small, every gift matters. Please consider making your gift today to support the Neighborhood Longhorns Program and/or UT Elementary School.
