Texas Tech Philanthropy Ranking Climbs to Top 150


Texas Tech has been listed as one of the top schools for philanthropic pursuits by a publication’s annual list.

Tech has been ranked 149th out of all nonprofit organizations around the country, recording the largest increase of all universities in the Big 12 Conference.

This ranking comes from “The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s” Philanthropy 400 list, far above Tech’s placement last year of 246th. In 2006, the University was ranked 303rd.

More than $184 million dollars in donations have helped Tech improve their ranking, placing above schools such as Michigan State University, Auburn, Rutgers, and the University of Nebraska.

The only schools in the Big 12 that placed higher on the list were the University of Oklahoma and the University of Kansas.

Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance commented on the ranking, saying “Texas Tech is fortunate to have many generous donors who realize the importance of higher education and greatly support the role our universities play in preparing future generations of leaders.”

The Philanthropy 400 list ranks organizations that raise the most from individuals, foundations, and businesses. Government funds are not counted. For the entire list, as well as a 20-year-history of the list, visit
