Today, in a gathering at the Alamo's newest structure since the 1950s, the Ralston Family Collections Center, the Alamo Trust, Inc. proudly unveiled the naming of the Second Floor Gallery as the IBC Foundation Gallery. This accolade comes in appreciation of the IBC Foundation's momentous $500,000 donation to the Remember the Alamo Foundation.

Mr. Dennis Nixon, Chairman of the Board, IBC Foundation, reflected on the occasion, saying, "The Alamo is the very essence of Texas, capturing a spirit of resilience, bravery, and an unwavering belief in freedom. When the opportunity arose for the IBC Foundation to contribute towards preserving and enhancing this treasured piece of Texas and American history; it was not just a decision, it was a responsibility we eagerly embraced. The Ralston Family Collections Center is a significant example of this progress. It's not just an achievement, it is a leap into a future where history is preserved to be cherished and experienced for decades to come."

Echoing the sentiment, Dr. Kate Rogers, Executive Director of the Alamo Trust, Inc., commented, "Today's unveiling of the IBC Foundation Gallery within the Ralston Family Collections Center underscores the impact of such collaborations in realizing our mission of creating a world-class destination in the heart of downtown San Antonio. The commitment from the IBC Foundation and Mr. Nixon reflects a shared vision to elevate the Alamo's story, ensuring its tales of bravery and sacrifice continue to inspire. As we continue this journey, it's crucial to recognize that every contribution plays an essential role in breathing life into the Alamo Plan."
