On Nov. 15, the nation pauses to collectively honor, thank and recognize the generous support given by so many. At Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, we’ve expanded that recognition throughout this week to say a special Thank You to our friends, alumni, faculty, students and staff for their gifts during The Campaign for Your Life, Our Purpose.

Join in the spirit of gratitude by sharing your “Thank You” with us on social media. Look for the special, red Because of You tags throughout our campuses to learn more about the gifts made possible by our donors.

  • Gift tags marking the spaces and the work where donors have contributed.
  • Door signs designating those who support Our HSC and Our Legacy Now.
  • Students wearing ribbons to designate they are a scholarship recipient.
  • Chairs representing faculty who hold endowed chair and professorship positions. 
  • Hexagons on the floor in the Academic Classroom Building at the Lubbock campus and pennants hanging in buildings on regional campuses representing each scholarship given to students.
  • Window signage recognizing the great strides TTUHSC has made in research with support from private funding. 
Gift Among Us

Shoulder of giants

A major gift from a charitable foundation, a bank draft from your bi-weekly paycheck or simply a student’s pocket change - it all adds up to one thing: a positive impact on TTUHSC. The university’s budget comes from a mix of state, local and private funds. Donor support, however, is truly what allows Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center to recruit and retain top-quality students, provide researchers the opportunity to develop competitive research studies that will garner NIH funding, and sustain outreach that improves the lives of those in our communities.

Because of you, we are researchers, innovators, providers.

People are living longer; our goal is to help them age healthily. Our collaborations with research universities across the nation help advance our work in areas such as aging, disease, cancer and diabetes.

Our HSC is a program 100% funded and administered by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center employees. Through this program, employees are empowered to make a positive impact on their workplace and this campaign showcases their pride in their campus and the great work that is done there. Funds raised through Our HSC have contributed to outdoor relaxation areas for faculty and staff, mobile charging stations and interpretation stands.


Our Legacy Now Student Foundation (OLN) is a student-led organization that provides emergency financial assistance to students who are experiencing unanticipated hardship. 100% of the funds raised assist TTUHSC students through need-based awards. Our Legacy Now gives TTUHSC students a place to turn to when the unexpected happens.
