McCombs Parents Council Funding
"The Parents Council has provided a great pathway for us to connect with key members of the McCombs administration, leaders in the Program Office, and parents of other students. We are confident that the involvement of the Parents Council will help the student experience at McCombs by providing feedback on programs and processes from the student and parents perspectives, and provide financial support to assist with these vital programs."

The Parents Council is playing an integral role in the McCombs School's goal of creating a $4 million endowment to support the BBA Program. Parents can support this effort by making gifts of any amount to the McCombs Parents Council Endowed Excellence Fund. Additionally, parents may also elect to create their own named endowments, starting at $50,000 paid over five years, to support the overall $4 million goal.
The principal funds of these endowments will be held and managed by the University of Texas Investment and Management Company (UTIMCO) in perpetuity. Accumulated returns from these endowments will be used to enhance BBA programs and the undergraduate student experience.
For more information on how to set up a permanent endowment, please contact Kelley Denby, Associate Director of Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org
