40 Hours for Forty Acres a huge success
Visiting with Camp Texas leaders helping with our 40-hour fundraiser
Last week, we set a goal of raising $40,000 in 40 hours for UT Austin. I’m happy to report that at the end of 40 hours, students and alumni had joined together to more than triple our goal, raising $128,516. Supported by social media and other channels, this was the most successful web-based fundraiser we have ever had.
On Friday, during the 40-hour campaign, I visited Gregory Gym to check the progress. There I met dozens of students from groups like Texas Blazers, Umoja, and Camp Texas who were raising money for UT and promoting their groups.
I’m so proud of our students and all of our alumni and friends who participated in this first-of-its-kind fundraiser. If you missed the event and would still like to give please visit this page.
What starts here changes the world.
