Red Raiders are encouraged to rally together to support philanthropic projects during 1,923 minutes of giving.

Texas Tech University will host its second annual Day of Giving on Aug. 15 and 16. During this online fundraising campaign, Red Raiders are encouraged to “Rally Together” to support programs most meaningful to them across the university.

“The success of our inaugural Texas Tech Day of Giving provided even greater opportunities and support for our students,” said Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovanec. “The gifts made as part of this event will continue our legacy of making a difference in the lives of Red Raiders and the future of Texas Tech.”

This university-wide online philanthropic event, themed “Rally Together,” begins at 8 a.m., Aug. 15 and concludes at 4:03 p.m., Aug. 16. It lasts 32 hours and 3 minutes – or 1,923 minutes – signifying the year of Texas Tech's founding.

Texas Tech Day of Giving features 24 projects from across the university representing all 13 of Texas Tech's colleges, as well as other areas of the university, including Texas Tech Athletics, the Burkhart Center for Autism Education & Research, the National Ranching Heritage Center and the Museum of Texas Tech University.

“Day of Giving gives us the opportunity to highlight some of the amazing, but possibly unseen, work being done across the university,” said Byron Kennedy, vice president for university advancement, “When Red Raiders come together, incredible work can be done, and this event is a testament to that spirit. We encourage everyone to find a project they are passionate about, make a gift and help share the remarkable things happening at Texas Tech.”

Day of Giving encourages all Red Raiders to find an area where they feel most connected and make a gift, because during this event, any gift to any fund anywhere on campus makes an impact.
