UNT Libraries raises $2.3M for the Portal to Texas History

(November 13, 2019)

The Portal to Texas History at the University of North Texas has now raised enough funding to receive $500,000 from a National Endowment for the Humanities challenge grant. 

The portal, which has more than 1.5 million historical materials like old newspapers and photographs, needed to raise $1.5 million in the past four years to receive the grant. This semester, fundraising hit $2.3 million. 

The funding goes to the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment, which funds technology and support for the collection, research fellowships and educational initiatives.
