Legacy Project



Behind every endowment are stories — of donors who give to the University they love, students who benefit from the generosity of others, and families who strive to make the world a better place through giving. The Legacy Project collects and shares these stories, providing a historical record of philanthropy at The University of Texas at Austin.

When donors create an endowment, they make an everlasting gift to The University of Texas at Austin. An endowment donation is never spent. It is invested, and earnings from the investment provide ongoing support for the University.

The Legacy Project links donors to the students and faculty who benefit from their gifts. Illuminating this shared heritage of giving, the Legacy Project describes the multitude of ways endowments improve the lives of others and fund the University’s pursuit of excellence.

The Legacy Project is a history of lives changed for the benefit of society.
