    Honor Your Texas Hero

    Our supporters, the people who donate to ensure that the state's rich history is preserved for future generations, are our Texas Heroes. Now, we want to give you the opportunity to honor your Texas Hero when you support the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission. Help us tell the real stories of real places and real people by making a donation and submitting a photograph of your hero - whether a relative, friend, or historical figure - along with a brief explanation to be shared on the FTHC website and Facebook page.

    Donations made to the Texas Heroes program allow the FTHC to invest in the capacity of the Texas Historical Commission to fulfill it's mission - to preserve and protect the state's historic and prehistoric resources. The FTHC is a vital partner in accomplishing this mission, responding to unique, important, and often time-sensitive opportunities. Read more about our current programs and projects.

    Use the donate button below to make a contribution and to submit a photograph along with a brief explanation. You may also choose to have an acknowledgment letter mailed to the honoree.

    As photos are submitted, they will be shared on this page, so check back regularly!
