Donations and Drives for UT Outpost

Make a Financial Gift

Monetary donations make the greatest immediate impact for UT Outpost, by allowing Outpost to purchase food and student supplies in bulk at times when opportunities for events like food drives are limited. Financial support also helps UT Outpost stay flexible, to adjust operations as needed throughout the year. The success of UT Outpost will depend on the support of our campus community and friends. Be a part of that success by making a financial gift today.
