An unprecedented $5 million commitment from the Texas Cavaliers Charitable Foundation has been made to The Alamo to fund the development of a Children’s Education Center at the World Heritage site. This generous five-year pledge, starting this year and concluding in 2026, coinciding with the 100thanniversary of the Texas Cavaliers, marks the largest charitable donation ever made to the Remember The Alamo Foundation.
The grant will be allocated towards the development of the Texas Cavaliers Education Center, a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to Alamo education programs. The center will encompass a variety of amenities, including a field trip hub, cutting-edge technology, classrooms for students and educators, a lecture space, a distance learning studio, and a remarkable 50,000 piece model of the historic 1836 Battle of the Alamo, constructed entirely from LEGO bricks.
Kate Rogers, Executive Director of Alamo Trust, expressed her gratitude for the Texas Cavaliers' long-standing commitment to preserving the history of the Alamo. She emphasized the invaluable opportunity presented by this generous gift to bring Texas history to life for students in an immersive and unparalleled learning environment.
WestEast Design Group is currently developing design plans for the Texas Cavaliers Education Center, with construction scheduled to commence later this year. The center will be located on the existing grounds of the Alamo Annex and Alamo Hall.
The Alamo Trust, Inc. is a prominent organization in San Antonio dedicated to preserving the historical significance of the Alamo. With over 1.6 million annual visitors, the Alamo serves as a cherished memorial to the heroes of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo and a testament to Texas independence.
The Alamo eagerly awaits the realization of the Texas Cavaliers Education Center, which will greatly enhance the educational resources available to students and visitors. The Alamo's transformation is part of a comprehensive redevelopment plan that includes the Exhibition Hall and Collections Building, as well as a future Alamo museum and visitor center.
