We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Join #GivingTuesday and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
As a non-profit organization, the Italian Art Society welcomes donations from individuals and organizations wishing to promote the study of the visual arts and architecture of Italy, from antiquity to the present. Funds help support IAS annual operations, including travel grants for graduate students and emerging scholars who are presenting conference papers, research and publication grants, and a lecture series that fosters exchange between the North American and Italian scholarly communities.
The IAS welcomes general operating contributions and is also happy to work with donors to direct contributions toward specific purposes, including travel grant support and/or the establishment of research or publication funds. All contributions beyond the level of annual dues are tax deductible.
