Donor Recognition

Recognition For Specific Contributions

The names of contributors of $500 and above to the Texas Union Lectureship and Student Awards endowments are included on plaques that are displayed in prominent locations in the Union. A limestone and slate plaque has been installed in the 3rd level Presidential Lobby that recognizes Sinclair Society members.

Cumulative Gift Recognition

The Ring of Honor and The Order of the Texas Star have been established to provide permanent, highly visible recognition to donors—individuals, corporations and foundations—who have provided significant support to The Texas Union and its programs. Names of qualifying donors of irrevocable planned gifts will also be included in the appropriate categories.

The Ring of Honor is a circle of black slate tiles surrounding a red and black Texas Star in a field of grey. The design was created in slate and inlaid in the center of the Union's South Lobby floor. Names are hand carved into the slate when a donor's cumulative gifts to the Union attain the designated giving level:

  • Ring of Honor ($2,500 to $10,000)
  • Order of the Texas Star
    • within the ring: $10,000 to $25,000
    • within the star: $25,000 and above
