Supporting Memberships

Mom with Shirt

Supporting members receive a "Texas Parents, Texas Proud" t-shirt.

Membership sign-ups for the 2024-25 academic year are open.

With a tax-deductible gift to the Texas Parents Association, incoming parents/families can sign up for a One-Year, Four-Year or Transfer supporting membership. These gifts are vital as they fund the operation of the Texas Parents office and are reinvested into the UT community through multiple outlets, including grants to student organizations and awards to students, faculty and staff.

As a supporting member, you will receive:

  • Beginning in August, a monthly Texas Parents Association eNewsletter on the 15th of each month and important updates from University administration.
  • Beginning in April, a monthly Benefit Reminder email on the 1st of each month that highlights useful member benefits.
  • Immediate access to the Texas Parents closed Facebook group which connects you with a strong community of fellow Longhorn parents who are eager to share information, advice and support. In the past few years, it's become extremely popular with members as a place to discuss, connect and celebrate! 
  • The benefit of shipping packages to the Texas Parents Office for your student year-round.
  • Immediate access to an online portal housing a comprehensive guide to your supporting membership benefits and how to use them.
  • Additional benefits include discounts with local and national vendors and special opportunities with Texas Athletics, based on the level of membership, that begin as soon as you sign up for membership.

After signing up, we’ll mail you a package with your Texas Parents membership card and other items.

All supporting members enjoy the basic supporting member benefits. Four-Year and Transfer supporting members receive further benefits, including special opportunities with Texas Athletics.
