IRRT's Endowment Campaign
Help us get to $50,000 goal to establish IRRT's Endowment
If you had the opportunity to attend the ALA International Librarians Reception at ALA Annual Conference in June 2015 in San Francisco, you may have heard the news about the IRRT Global Leaders Campaign which raises the endowment fund. The fundraising campaign started in 2009. We have now received donations over $38,000, with a goal reaching to $50,000 by June 1, 2016, to officially establish the Endowment account, as it is required by ALA. The Endowment fund will support IRRT’s international activities and initiatives which contribute to ALA’s important role in international librarianship. The funding support through the Endowment will be able to provide support for international speakers and programs; promote a global dialogue about librarianship; increase visibility of international opportunities for U.S. and international librarians, and encourage international collaboration in librarianship.
