Vision & Tradition Campaign Passes $750M Mark
Today, because of the generosity of our alumni and friends, I am happy to announce that we are more than three-quarters of the way to our $1 billion goal for Vision & Tradition: The Campaign for Texas Tech.
With our most recent gift of $45.1 million of software from Schlumberger, our fundraising total for this campaign has reached $770 million dollars and represents an important milestone in the largest fundraising campaign ever undertaken by the Texas Tech University System. Thanks to the support of our alumni and friends, we are on track to reach our $1 billion goal by 2013, and we will finish strong.
This campaign marks an important time of growth for the entire Texas Tech University System. We are investing in student scholarships, supporting faculty research and building new facilities across our institutions, and already we can see the impact of these gifts.
Today is a great day for Texas Tech, and I hope you will join with me as we celebrate our progress. Thank you for your continued support of Vision & Tradition: The Campaign for Texas Tech.
