Moving Texas History Forward

Every year TSHA, with the support from donors and members like you, provides programs, educational services, publications, and resources that annually reach nearly 80,000 elementary, secondary, and college students, as well as enhance the teaching techniques of over 18,000 educators per year. Last year alone, our online resources, including The Handbook of Texas, reached more than 5.5 million people in nearly 230 countries across the world.

TSHA relies on your support to continue to provide programs and resources such as:

  • Our educational resources, which must expand to meet demand. For example, Texas History Day and the Texas History Challenge see increased growth and popularity each year.
  • Digitization of existing TSHA content. TSHA seeks to digitize all 160 years of the Texas Almanac, to make this unique resource accessible to people across the globe.
  • Special projects through the Handbook of Texas. Since the start of 2017, TSHA has launched the Handbook of Houston and unveiled the Handbook of Texas Women Project.

Support from donors like you help TSHA to make major advancements like:

  • Completely integrating the database of entries from our most utilized resources, such as the Handbook of Texas, the Texas Almanac, the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, and more – and making them fully searchable in a single place on our website!
  • Expanding our unrivaled resources for teachers – That means 475+ lesson plans, suggested readings, films, and more all gathered and integrated into a searchable resource for teachers.

These two projects represent a major endeavor that will take months to complete - but we expect the impact to be huge. Not only will all our resources be searchable in one place but each will include more multimedia and interactive resources.

As you can see, there is much to be done. With your help, we can do it.
