Texas Tech University

Support the Museum

There are more than 8 million objects in the Museum's collections, and each one tells a story about the region and the people and creatures who have lived here over the centuries. We need your help to preserve and increase our collections so that that we can preserve these stories for future generations.

Your donations help us to continue our research into life on the Llano Estacado dating back 12,000 years; restore artifacts; cultivate the curiosity of a child – or an adult − and provide support for graduate students who will become the next generation of museum leaders.

We urge you to donate to or become a member of the Museum of Texas Tech University Association. This membership group has been the foundation of the Museum since it began almost 90 years ago. By becoming a member of the Association, you can receive discounts in the museum shop, advanced information about lectures, performances, films, and other special events, and special members-only invitations to exhibition previews of events.

For more information about Association membership go to www.mottua.org or call (806) 742-2443.

You may donate directly to the Museum through cash donations, bequests, and endowments. We accept donations of any amount as every bit helps. If you have works of art or artifacts you would like to see held safely in a publically accessible collection, please contact the Museum, and one of our curators will assess whether the objects align with the collections development priorities of the Museum.

For direct gifts, bequests, and endowments to the Museum, contact Emily Phillips, development officer, at e.phillips@ttu.edu or call (806) 834-2833.

Your generous support helps to promote art, science, and culture in Lubbock and the surrounding communities. Whatever the amount of your donation or membership level, you make a difference to the Museum of Texas Tech University and our community.
