The Texas Education Grantmakers Advocacy Consortium (TEGAC) is a grant-making organization comprised of 50 foundations involved in supporting advocacy for increased taxpayer funding for public education in Texas.  Its strategies include lobbying for more taxes, conducting research to determine best practices in education, and determining where the greatest needs in funding exist.  TEGAC’s studies frequently conclude that more revenues from the Texas state government are needed to make up for budget cuts, and to help the non-English speaking students whose numbers have dramatically increased in Texas in recent decades. 
Texas Education Grantmakers Advocacy Consortium was created in 2012 due governmental spending cuts for Texas public education. It consists of a fluctuating number of organizations that seek to improve education. The avenues used are typically producing research that supports additional taxpayer spending, then educating and lobbying politicians with the studies to influence an increase of the state budget.  In 2019, TEGAC merged with Educate Texas. 
Center for Public Policy Priorities
TEGAC partners with the left-of-center Center for Public Policy Priorities and to produce analysis supporting improved student outcomes by increasing funding. One study defends “recapture,” of revenues from wealthier school districts for districts with fewer assets. The study asserts that the redistribution of tax dollars makes funding of schools more equitable. It further blames the Texas government for negatively impacting high need districts through insufficient funding. 
The partnership has also aligned to create the 2020 Texas Counts Campaign to support and encourage left-leaning demographics’ participation in the 2020 U.S. Census.
