UTRGV largest donation in higher education


RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – A historic day for the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and the Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation as UTRGV gifted $38 million to the foundation.

The gift, which establishes THRIVE, a unique medical hub for scientific discovery focused on improving health in the valley, is also the largest gift in UTRGV history.

THRIVE provides high-quality, evidence-based medical services in surgery and clinical genetics to the Valley.

It also serves as a magnet to attract new researchers, clinicians, and grant funding to the area.
