Two Weeks In

February 22, 2022

We are two weeks into our Hornraiser campaign and have raised $1,135 of our $3,000 goal! We greatly appreciate the donations made by our 16 donors so far. These donations are helping support the underrepresented graduate community at UT Austin by allowing GUM to foster a supportive community, hold workshops to support the professional development of our members, as well as funding our annual retreat that will take place in May. With two weeks remaining, there is still time for us to reach our goal! Help us continue to spread the word of our campaign by spreading our Hornraiser page:
