Generous Support

Mavs Give Back

UTA’s Day of Giving brought a wave of support from the Maverick community

Maverick spirit shows itself in all kinds of ways: the crowd of blue and orange filling College Park Center during Homecoming basketball games, the cheers that bound through Texas Hall for every Convocation, and the tears of joy and pride at every graduation ceremony. In late April, on UTA’s inaugural Day of Giving, the Maverick spirit showed itself in a tidal wave of generous donations from alumni, faculty, staff, students, and friends of the University.

A total of $209,068 was raised from 579 gifts, primarily from alumni. Nineteen percent of the donors gave to the University for the first time. The money raised supported UTA’s Emergency Assistance Fund, general scholarships, The Shorthorn, athletics, and more.

One donor even took the opportunity to present the University with a gift-in-kind: a map from 1548 depicting the area that would become Texas.

“I had been at UTA for less than a month, and the UTA Day of Giving gave me an introduction to the outpouring of love and support that so many have for the University,” says Michele Boillotat, assistant vice president for development. “The buzz traveled literally all over the world. UTA means so much to so many, and I look forward to seeing how this Day of Giving develops on an annual basis.”
