The Texas German Dialect Project would not be possible without the financial support provided by individuals who believe in the project and its mission. Donations to the Texas German Dialect Project (TGDP) help support the following:
- The recording, processing, and online archiving of interviews with speakers of Texas German, which involves travel, equipment costs, and other expenses;
- Paying students & other staff for their work with the TGDP;
- Travel to give presentations about Texas German at academic conferences, meetings of genealogical societies, and preservation clubs;
- The creation and distribution of educational materials about Texas German culture, folklore, language, and history for K-12 as well as higher education;
A donation to the Texas German Endowment is a long-term investment in the future of our project, and is a way to make your gift keep giving in the years to come. Besides supporting on-going project activities, funds generated by the Endowment will be used for fellowships to support student and faculty at the University of Texas at Austin who are conducting research on Texas German culture, folklore, language, and history.
For more information about the Endowment, please contact Dr. Hans Boas at firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 796-3046.
