Giving to the TECHniques Center
The impact the TECHniques Center has on students and tutors would not be possible without the generous support of donations from people like you. People can give to the TECHniques Center in multiple ways:
The TECHniques Center Fund for Excellence was established in 2009 to help ensure the TECHniques Center’s long-term viability.
Proceeds from The TECHniques Center Fund for Excellence facilitate student success in many ways, including:
- Purchasing new and updated technology and software programs that support student learning.
- Purchasing tutoring materials and supplies for tutoring sessions.
- Purchasing resources to support the valuable training that tutors receive each semester.
- Providing scholarship assistance to students who need the services of the TECHniques Center, but may not be able to afford the fee.
The ultimate goal of the TECHniques Center Fund for Excellence is to move the TECHniques Center towards financial independence by allowing the Center to become fully self-supported. A self-supported TECHniques Center would ensure services for students with learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Autism Spectrum Disorders for many years to come.
The TECHniques Center Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 2014 by the Leinen Family. This fund provides annual scholarships to students who are currently enrolled in the TECHniques Center and aims to allow access to students who could not otherwise afford our fees.
The Guy & Elwanda Phillippe Scholarship Endowment Fund was established by Dr. Larry Phillippe in 2014 in honor of his parents for their many years of supporting Texas Tech University. The Phillippe Scholarship provides yearly scholarships to students in any major and currently enrolled in the TECHniques Center of Student Disability Services.
The Jack T. Grant Memorial Scholarship Endowment was established in 2017 by Todd and Kimberly Grant in honor of their beloved son, Jack Grant, who was a student in the TECHniques Center at the time of his unexpected passing in 2017. The Grant family established this scholarship fund so that they and others “could contribute to the success of future students” in the TECHniques Center. This scholarship is awarded to a currently enrolled student in the TECHniques Center who demonstrates financial need.
Because of the charitable gifts and donations we have received, the TECHniques Center has been able to provide food and drinks to hungry students, improve outdated work spaces, update technology and software, develop advanced tutor training experiences for our tutors so that we can provide the best service possible, and celebrate student successes, among many other things.
A donation, no matter the size, makes an impact on our program.
If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation to the TECHniques Center and be a part of these experiences, you can donate directly to either fund online.
