McCombs Legacy Intro

The McCombs School of Business invites you to join the first-of-its-kind Legacy Challenge.

Here’s how a single gift can make a greater impact. If you document a future gift of $100,000 or more through your estate plan, the McCombs School of Business will make an immediate donation (while funds last) to any program or project in the school that you choose!

Your gift will make an impact today and a lasting one in the future.

The process is easy. Complete this simple form to initiate your planned gift. Or you can download and complete an Estate Intention Letter and email it to our experienced planned giving advisor Byron Liles to get started. With no burden on your pocketbook today, you can help strengthen our reputation as a world-class business school.

Your Gift Makes a Difference

David and Melissa Druley are loyal alumni who have established endowments to support students by creating a gift through their estate plans to help keep the McCombs School of Business on top for generations to come. They share, “UT has had a powerful impact on us, and we want to pay that forward. Our life’s goal really is to do all we can to close the ‘opportunity divide.’ And one way to do that is to support scholarships, both now and in the future through our estate. We want everyone who has the merit to attend, to have the funds to attend as well.”
