Letter from the President

President FenvesThe Hearts of Texas Campaign, UT’s tradition of charitable giving, embodies one of the reasons The University of Texas is so special. It empowers our community to serve society not only through education and research but through direct contributions. Since this effort began in 1996 UT Austin has donated nearly $10 million to worthy causes.

I encourage you to consider giving generously to this year’s Hearts of Texas Campaign, which runs the entire month of October. You will be able to direct your gift to any of more than 500 charities.

Whether it is a meal for a needy family or support for the charitable trust of your choosing, your gift will make an impact. Let’s make this year’s Hearts of Texas Campaign the most successful yet.

Gregory L. Fenves, President
The University of Texas at Austin
