Mary Ann & DeLoss Dodds Legacy Campaign

DeLoss Dodds has always said his greatest accomplishment was seeing student-athletes graduate from The University of Texas. In honor of DeLoss’ unwavering commitment to education, the Longhorn Foundation created the Mary Ann & DeLoss Dodds Legacy Campaign specifically to support our former student-athletes seeking to return to The University of Texas to complete their undergraduate or postgraduate degrees.

From 1981 to 2013 Texas Athletics achieved unprecedented success, providing resources that touched every student-athlete and every coach in every sport. But there is just one common denominator — DeLoss Dodds.

Join us in celebrating the charming man from Kansas whose vision and leadership changed the face of Texas Athletics. From now until December, 31st, 2016, we aim to raise $775,000 in representation of one fully endowed scholarship. Every gift matters, large or small.  Imagine how fast we can reach this goal if Longhorn Nation unites!   

Degree Completion- For former student-athletes who left the university and are returning to finish their undergraduate degrees. 

5th Year Aid - For student-athletes with exhausted eligibility and remaining credits needed to complete their degrees. 

Graduate School - For graduated former student-athletes that seek additional Postgraduate degrees from The University of Texas.

Thank you for your support!
