Contribute to the Friends of Libraries & Archives of Texas
General Fund and/or our Preservation Endowment Fund

Funds raised go to expand the services, collections and education activities of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, including archival preservation and conservation; digitization of rare and fragile documents, maps and records; support for public libraries in communities across Texas; and public programming and outreach. Contribute now.

Our recently launched Texas Historical Preservation Endowment creates a permanent fund to support preservation activities of the Texas State Archives. Donate here. Please specify Texas Historical Preservation Endowment

Your contribution will directly impact your State Archives, home to the Travis Letter from the Alamo; the Matamoros Battalion flag, captured at the Battle of San Jacinto; and other priceless and unique documents and artifacts of Texas history.

Why should you contribute?

Because the Texas State Library and Archives Commission contributes directly to the quality of life for all of the people of Texas. Libraries in Texas are better because of the Commission. You can help by making the dream of a state-of-the-art state library and archives a reality.

Your tax-deductible donation will assist in creating a first-class library and archives for the State of Texas.
