Donations from members of the university community make Orange Santa possible and help provide a happy holiday season for the children of Longhorn Nation. This year, instead of the traditional toy drive Orange Santa Holiday Store, applicants will be provided with a gift card to purchase gifts for each child.

As the need is expected to be greater this year, Orange Santa has a goal to raise $35,000 from November 2 through November 30. Please contribute today!



Individual Contributions

Please visit the HornRaiser page for this program. On average, a $35 donation will provide a gift card for one child within the Longhorn community. Additional pre-set donation levels and information are available on the HornRaiser page. 


You may also contribute by sending a check to:

University Events
PO Box S
Austin, TX, 78712


Checks should be made payable to “The University of Texas at Austin” and coded “Orange Santa” in the memo line. Please do not send cash through campus mail. For more information, contact Elvia Moreno Alvarado.

Donations are tax deductible for the calendar year in which they are given.
