Now in its seventh year, 40 Hours for the Forty Acres is an annual university-wide fundraising event that encourages everyone in the UT Austin community to give to the UT people, places and programs that are meaningful to them. For 40 hours, students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends come together as a community and show their support.
Why give to the Hogg Foundation?
- Direct relief of family needs like rent, food, and medication assistance
- Psychiatric first aid for frontline workers
- Mitigation of COVID-19’s impact on policy advocacy and census outreach efforts
- Cushioning organizations against the economic pain caused by the ongoing lockdown
Factoring in the effects of social isolation, job and income loss, and the trauma of the disease itself, the mental health toll of COVID-19 is likely to be huge and long-lasting. We’re proud to work alongside incredible organizations and individuals working to improve the mental health and well-being of Texans and transform the places where people live, learn, work, play and pray. Your gift will help ensure that this ongoing crisis will not jeopardize that work, but that it will keep going strong for the people of Texas.
