Comets Giving Days
THANK YOU!

THANK YOU to everyone who chose to COMETogether for UT Dallas during Comets Giving Days! Because of your generosity, the impact of Comets Giving Days will be felt across campus, from schools to academic departments and student affairs. We are grateful for the strength in numbers of our Comet community today and always!


Update: We’re excited to announce the largest gift made so far during Comets Giving Days! Jerry Comer MS’77 and his wife, Marilyn, have given $500,000 that will support the Comer Collection of Photography, one of UT Dallas most important and unique archives. Thank you Jerry and Marilyn!


As an added bonus, your Comets Giving Days gift will also include you as part of our newly launched New Dimensions campaign – an effort that, with your help, will transform the University’s impact across the globe.
