40 for Forty Challenge Pool
What is the Challenge Pool?
We love a little competition among friends. The Challenge Pool multiplies the impact of your gift and inspires other Longhorns to give. These funds are awarded to colleges, schools, units, or student organizations for winning various challenges throughout the 40 hours.
