Education

In addition to the National Projects, the Texas Society shall have State Projects as directed by the members at the annual meeting of the State Council. One of those projects is the Memorial Books for the Texas State Library.

Chapters may make cash contributions toward the purchase of a book or books concerning the 1812 period (1784-1815) for the Texas State Library, Austin, Texas. Checks should be sent to the State Treasurer of the Texas State Society, and may be designated as a memorial. Titles and prices of desirable books shall be obtained by the State Librarian from the Texas State Library and an order and a check shall be sent by the State Librarian through the State Treasurer to the State Library in Austin. Monies for the project shall be kept and accounted for separately by the State Treasurer.

Schools

A major focus of the United States Daughters of 1812 is education. With the help of our donations, boys and girls, that might not otherwise, have an opportunity for a better education. The National Society endorses four schools:
