The College of Natural Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin invites you to join the 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 College of Natural Sciences will make an immediate donation (while funds last) to any program or project in the college 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 get started. With no burden on your pocketbook today, you can support our goal to be the world’s highest-impact public research university for science, mathematics and computing, unleashing knowledge, opportunity and innovation from the heart of Texas.

Your Gift Makes a Difference

“My legacy gift pledge to the Wildflower Center, the Botanic Garden of Texas, will help sustain it long after I am gone and unlock immediate support for the Wildflower Center through the Legacy Challenge. By documenting my legacy gift, I was able to direct Legacy Challenge funds to my priority — gardens!”
