New Fundraising Initiative
October 12, 2016
SBN encourages donations to help fund student travel awards.
SBN encourages donations to help fund student travel awards. Now that federal funding for meetings like ours has disappeared it is especially important for members to help out those at early career stages. It is easy to donate at the SBN website (there is a donation button on the home page) and you will find two new features on the donation page.
First, to kick off the new fund raising initiative a special drive has been launched to create a Lynwood Clemens student travel award fund in honor of our Lehrman Award winner who died this year. It appears as an option on the donation page.
Second, the page also includes an option to donate in celebration of someone at any time. “In celebration of” can honor either living SBN members (for example, someone who just retired or had a major birthday) or deceased members.
All donors will be acknowledged in the annual meeting Program book in addition to receiving a thank you letter.
