|For 1,899 minutes on October 7 and 8, the entire Bobcat community will come together to support projects from across the university during Step Up for State, Texas State's annual day of giving campaign. We encourage you to support the Step Up For State projects you are passionate about, including the Alumni Association Priority Fund.
During Step Up for State, the first 100 individuals who give $100 or more to the Priority Fund through the Step Up for State website will have their gifts matched up to $100 by UFCU. This opportunity not only allows for your impact to be doubled, but the matched gift will also count toward your Forever Bobcat status!
Please call our office if you have questions about your giving progress toward becoming a Forever Bobcat.

Bobcats in the Wild
"We are all having to re-think the way we currently connect with others. It's important to remember how needed we all are, and to leverage and value our networks and personal relationships. The Bobcat network extends beyond San Marcos. If you are in a position to share your talents and energy with your local Alumni Network, please consider doing so! We are stronger together."

"Empower others through your very own words. Share your story, passion and growth since you've graduated from TX State University. In these uncertain times, it's more important than ever, to stay connected through encouragement. Share with alums by expressing exactly where you have been, how you feel, and what you are going through. Words are powerful. Take this opportunity to enlighten fellow bobcats by keeping it real and sharing your positive vibes."
