Scholarships and Contributions

The University of Texas Longhorn Alumni Band Charitable Fund Scholarship Program

Contributions to the Longhorn Alumni Band Charitable Fund provide funding for scholarships awarded to deserving Longhorn Band students. Contributions are tax deductible under IRS provisions 501 (c)(3). Individuals making substantial, sustained, or unique contributions are recognized at the annual Band Day meeting.

Although the Charitable Fund no longer maintains its own Donor Recognition Awards Program, our partners in UT Development work diligently to recognize and honor donors of all levels who contribute to various needs of the Longhorn Band and its students.

Many Longhorn Band alumni and friends have established Named Scholarships to honor former band members, loved ones, or others who share or shared their passion for the Showband of the Southwest. If you are interested in learning more about how to establish Named Scholarships or an honorary endowment for a specific purpose, including planned giving or pledged contributions over time, please contact Andrew West at:
