October is Archives Month! The TMC Library is celebrating with a special opportunity to support the McGovern Historical Center. Help the McGovern Historical Center secure the history of the Texas Medical Center.

When you make a tax-deductible gift to the McGovern Historical Center, your money goes a long way. All levels of donation are welcome and support our work. Here are examples of how we utilize financial support:

    • $10 buys an archival box to preserve papers
    • $50 preserves one box of collection materials
    • $250 buys permanent archival labels for boxes
    • $500 purchases film preservation supplies
    • $1,500 supports a year of online access to our collections archives.library.tmc.edu/
  • $2,500 upgrades the camera we use for digitization
  • $5,000 helps us fund a 12-week internship for an archives student

Financial gifts made during October include three levels of special recognition:

  • Donors of $5 or more will receive special thanks
  • Donors of $50 or more will have their name permanently inscribed on an archival box label
  • Donors of $250 or more will be invited to a reception in the McGovern Rare Book Collection early in 2023.

Help the campaign follow and tag #Give2History on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. With your support we hope to surpass our $1,000 goal for the month.
