A Million Horns


A Million Horns current total is $560,000.

There are a million reasons to support UT. And now, as an ExxonMobil employee or retiree, you have another one: A Million Horns.

Your association with both The University of Texas at Austin and ExxonMobil positions you to have a significant impact on UT’s efforts to change the world. ExxonMobil’s 3-to-1 matching-gift program and $7,500 annual cap sets the standard for corporate matching programs in higher education.

To help recognize and celebrate the giving spirit of the ExxonMobil community, in 2008 we launched A Million Horns, a campaign to reach the $1 million mark in ExxonMobil matching funds. In 2011, we surpassed our goal, and this spring we received a matching-gift check for $1,190,993.25, which is the largest check ExxonMobil awarded to any university this year and the largest matching-gift check UT Austin has ever received.

Gifts from ExxonMobil employees, spouses, and annuitants — along with the company’s generous matching-gift program — support vital research in areas such as sustainable energy sources, education, and global health issues. These initiatives help change the world for the better and reinforce UT’s reputation as one of the great public research universities in the country.

If you currently participate in this program, we thank you. If not, please join A Million Horns now. Donations received by Dec. 31, 2012, with a matching request will count toward our current $1 million matching-gifts goal.

Please help us make A Million Horns as successful as last year’s record year. Make your gift online now then visit to submit your match request online.

Your generosity and ExxonMobil’s will help The University of Texas have a greater impact on society than any other institution of its kind. And for that we say, “Thanks a million.”

Make a gift to UT.
