COMETS GIVING DAY - 4.2.19

#COMETogetherUTD

The 3rd annual UT Dallas Giving Day will be held on Tuesday, April 2, 2019. On this day, we ask all alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents and friends to visit this page and make an online donation to support any area of UT Dallas.


In 2018, Comets Giving Day 2018 resulted in more than $389,000 from over 2,020 gifts! With your support we can break this record on April 2.

 

Leading up to the big day, here is how you can help:

 

Issue a challenge or matching gift

Do you want to make a major impact on the 2019 Comets Giving Day? Already planning to make a major gift to the University? By issuing a Comets Giving Day matching gift or participation challenge, you can motivate thousands of alumni and friends to make a gift to the area of UT Dallas that means the most to you.

 

Email us if you're interested in making your impact go even further by creating your very own challenge or match for the Comet community!
