Advancing education is investing in our economy

December 7, 2022

By 2030, 62% of all Texas jobs will require some kind of postsecondary credential. But only 48% of adults in Texas have a postsecondary credential, and currently only 23% of Texas students earn a postsecondary degree within 6 years of graduation.

A statewide voter survey, commissioned by Philanthropy Advocates and conducted by Baselice & Associates, Inc., shows strong, bipartisan support for investments in Texas students and the State's future workforce.  

94% of Texans agree that an educated workforce is the key to the future economic success of Texas. Advancing education supports a highly-skilled workforce and ensures the continued success of our Texas economy. 

View the voter survey for further details.

Philanthropy Advocates was formerly known as the Texas Education Grantmakers Advocacy Consortium (TEGAC) until August 2020. Previously-created resources, documents and blog posts mentioning TEGAC are still provided on this website for your reference.
