A Great Option for “Giving Tuesday”: Donate to the IAS Thirtieth Anniversary Campaign!
Since the launch of Italian Art Society’s Thirtieth Anniversary membership and fundraising campaign this past September, we are excited to report that the response has been marvelous: in addition to funds raised, we are only 12 new or renewing members away from hitting our 500-member goal.
If you want to give on this “Giving Tuesday,” consider donating to or becoming a member of IAS. Remember: all memberships expire on 31 December of this year, so now is a great time to join or renew!
How else can you help? Please encourage non-members (colleagues, friends, aficionados) working on or appreciative of Italian art, architecture, and visual culture acrossculture across all media, periods, and career paths to join the IAS.
We now also offer the option to sponsor another individual’s membership. Given the number of graduate students, emerging scholars, contingent faculty, and independent scholars with whom we share a field, we thought this would be an excellent way for many of us to “pay it forward” and offer membership to those whom it might benefit most.
In regards to fundraising, our anniversary-specific campaign celebrates the growth and longevity of IAS. We are asking members to consider donations in permutations of 3 and/or 30 to support our mission, programs, grants, charitable activities (including Italian earthquake-related donations), and publications.
Founded in 1987, the Italian Art Society is dedicated to the study of Italian art and architecture from prehistory to the present. In addition to IASblog, which brings news of all things Italian to its readers on a daily basis (thank you for following us), our varied programs aim to support scholars and enthusiasts seeking to engage with all things Italian.
