Join Comets Giving Day on August 5-6, 2020

In the face of this global pandemic, Comets around the world have shown their strength, resiliency and humanity by helping those in need. Now more than ever, it’s our time to COMETogether and celebrate our strong Comet community.  


Mark your calendars for August 5-6, 2020, our new dates for Comets Giving Day.


This year’s giving day will be unlike any day we’ve had before. Lasting 1,969 minutes in honor of our University’s 50th anniversary, our 2020 Comets Giving Day will be a time to celebrate the past 50 years and look forward to the future.  


Gift challenges and matches will be announced throughout the day, making your gift's impact* stretch even further. Check your email and @UTDallasAlumni channels for details, virtual events and challenges to take part in.


Be a part of a cosmic impact so strong that only Comets could create. #COMETogetherUTD



*Gifts must be $2 or more to qualify for matches and/or challenges.
