The Hearts of Texas Charitable Campaign is an annual opportunity for Longhorn Nation to help our neighbors and community members in need. By donating, you change lives and you inspire others to do the same. Since the campaign’s inception in 1996, UT’s faculty members and staff members have donated about $14 million to charities in Central Texas and beyond.
Through the month of October, you can give to more than 500 organizations that perform remarkable services for our society. The pandemic has tested local charities’ ability to provide services and, in some cases, even their fiscal viability. The contributions made to this campaign have been a lifeline to them during a difficult year. I encourage you to open your hearts and give generously to help continue their good work.
Please join me in making this Hearts of Texas Charitable Campaign a truly meaningful celebration of service and humanity. By giving together, we can share the values that define our university with the rest of the world and we can help those who need help the most.
Jay C. Hartzell, President
The University of Texas at Austin
