Thank You Everyone for Your Support!

April 29, 2017

Thank you everyone for your support and for sharing our page the past month and a half!

Our HornRaiser project has officially ended. We surpassed our goal by $12,502 with $22,502 total in donations!

The HornRaiser Team is forever grateful for everyone's donation and support. With your donation, philanthropy education will continue at The University of Texas at Austin. Students will be able to have the opportunity to become informed future philanthropists and a well-vetted nonprofit in return will receive your generous contribution.

Thank you for a successful HornRaiser project!
