Texas Tech System concludes historic capital campaign

Provided by Texas Tech University

The Texas Tech University System marked the official conclusion of its most ambitious fundraising effort, Vision and Tradition: The Campaign for Texas Tech, on Aug. 31.

Surpassing its original goal of $1 billion well ahead of schedule, the campaign generated a total of $1.069 billion, making it the most successful capital campaign in the history of the TTU System.

"From our outstanding alumni base to our tireless development team, we have so many to thank for the success of this campaign," said Chancellor Kent Hance. "The support of our donors is truly unprecedented, and I am so grateful for their dedication to see this campaign through to the end."

Officially announced Sept. 17, 2010, the Vision & Tradition campaign has spurred an extraordinary time of growth at all four of the TTU System's component institutions - Texas Tech University, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Angelo State University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso. Donations received during the campaign are benefiting student scholarships, faculty endowments, research efforts and facility improvements, among many other areas.

The $1 billion goal was achieved and exceeded thanks to a total of nearly 130,000 generous donors. Gifts to the campaign came from all 50 states and 41 countries.

"The Vision and Tradition campaign has ensured each of our institutions has a very promising future ahead," Hance said. "Each and every gift has contributed to a lasting legacy that will benefit the Texas Tech family for years to come."
