The DRT Library is getting ready to move, and we need your help!


For more than a century, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas have volunteered their time and efforts to protect our Texas history. Now, we need your help to save the treasures we’ve preserved.
To make way for the Alamo Plaza expansion, the DRT was told it must move the 38,000 piece DRT Library Collection by July 2016. We are currently working with Texas A&M – San Antonio to relocate the collection to a building associated with the university.
But moving such an expansive collection will be an expensive undertaking.

On May 3rd, tens of thousands of folks are going to show their support for their favorite San Antonio nonprofits during The Big Give SA. Every donation you give on May 3rd will go a long way to helping us preserve and keep our historic collection in San Antonio.

In order to reach our goal of $35,000 we need your help with these three things:
1 Mark May 3rd on your calendar and add this giving link:
2 Follow us on Facebook ( and help build the buzz.
1 Spread the word! Forward this email to your family and friends along with a personal note as to why you believe in our work, and why they should give on May 3rd.
Please save May 3rd as the date to donate to our DRT Library Collection Fund and help ensure that we are able to preserve and keep this special part of our history in San Antonio. We can’t wait to celebrate the difference your generosity will make!
