DAR collection to be added to College of Building Arts library

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The American College of the Building Arts has been granted a large grant from the Daughters of the American Revolution to add to a special collection in the school's library.

The DAR is donating $9,400 to the College of the Building Arts for the creation of the DAR Special Collection in the College's Byrne-Diderot Library which also includes over 6,000 books relating to traditional building arts.

The money is coming from The Fort Sullivan Chapter of the DAR located in Charleston.

"We are thrilled to receive this generous gift from the DAR," Colby M. Broadwater, III, president of the College said. "Our application was one of many and we deeply appreciate the DAR's commitment to the teaching of the traditional building trades.  We are fortunate that they have chosen to assist us in preserving these rare and historical books, periodicals and materials so integral to the instruction in the classic building arts.  Not only do our students benefit from this collection, but it is open to the public for their use as well. "

Launched in 2010, the DAR grants program receives hundreds of grants applications each year, making competition for the funding high.  

Interested groups must be sponsored by a local DAR chapter, submit a copy of their 501(c)(3) IRS documentation, and include a narrative that describes the need and urgency of the project as well as planned activities and benefits to the community which will result from the grant.
