How to Make a Gift
"Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men."
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
All gifts, in all forms, are important to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC). Whether you make a gift of cash, stock, or another asset, you can direct your gift to any specific school or program at the Health Sciences Center that is of particular interest to you.
This section provides you with information about the many ways you can make a contribution to TTUHSC. To make a gift by credit card now, please go to our secure online giving page.
Cash, Checks & Credit Cards
Gifts of cash, check or credit card, are the easiest gifts to make. They are also tax deductible in the year given. TTUHSC also gratefully accepts pledges -- gifts that are paid over time. You can make a pledge commitment and set up a payment schedule that works best for you.
To make a gift of cash or pledge your gift to TTUHSC, please:
- Make your check payable to:
- Texas Tech Foundation
- *Specify which school/program you wish your gift to support on the memo line
- Mail your check to:
- Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
- Institutional Advancement
- 3601 4th Street, Mail Stop 6238
- Lubbock, Texas 79430
Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated securities and closely held stock can be extremely beneficial -- both to you and to TTUHSC. You may receive an income-tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities, as well as reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes. Proceeds from the sale of these assets are directed to any program you wish. Please contact GivingInfo@ttuhsc.edu or call 806-743-2786 for more information.
Gifts in Kind
Items gifted such as specialized equipment, land, artwork, or other tangible personal property are classified as Gifts in Kind. Gifts in Kind are, by definition, non-cash gifts of goods and/or services that can be put to immediate use by TTUHSC. Please contact GivingInfo@ttuhsc.edu or call 806-743-2786 for more information.
You can double, even triple your gift to TTUHSC by taking advantage of your company's matching gift program. Corporate matching gifts are a great way for TTUHSC alumni, parents and friends to maximize personal contributions and increase the impact of their gift. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, please visit our Matching Gifts page or email us at GivingInfo@ttuhsc.edu.
Planned gifts give you the opportunity to leave a legacy to TTUHSC through your estate plans. These gifts can be made now or deferred to a later time. Such gifts include bequests and wills, gifts of life insurance, retirement plans, and other contributions made through your estate. Many planned giving options allow donors and their loved ones to receive income during their lifetime from assets that will eventually benefit TTUHSC. Please contact GivingInfo@ttuhsc.edu or call 806-743-2786 for more information.
Payroll Deductions for Employees
Faculty and staff of TTUHSC and TTU have the option to give in installments automatically applied through payroll deduction. In order to set-up a payroll deduction, you will need to contact our office at GivingInfo@ttuhsc.edu or call 806-743-2786. We will aid you in completing the appropriate paperwork and will contact payroll on your behalf.
