Jim Bones Donation Option

The distinguished photographer and former fellow Jim Bones is making a generous offer to those who contribute $100 or more to the Dobie Paisano Director’s Fund.

In return for your contribution, Bones will provide an 11-by-14 print of one of his magnificent photographs of the Texas Hill Country or the ranch. The images are printed on 13-by-19-inch fine art archival paper, and are valued at $350.

Include the name of the print you select with your check, made payable to The University of Texas at Austin. Indicate in the memo “Director’s Fund, Dobie Paisano.”

Donors may order a print for each $100 contributed, but the contributions will not be tax deductible. If you wish to receive a print and a tax deduction for any amount over $100, enclose two separate checks.

Mail checks to the address listed above.
