The BSA calls upon its members and friends to pledge their support for the Society with a gift to the Annual Fund. Our budget depends upon $25,000 in support through fundraising, and this year we hope not only to meet but to exceed that goal. And we need you now, more than ever.
Especially in these uncertain times, your support will help BSA to adapt to new challenges ahead. Economic fluctuations are highly visible within libraries, which are often the first to face funding cuts for collection development, programs for researchers, and professional development for staff. BSA stands ready, with your help, to foster the study of books and other textual artifacts in accordance with our mission, in good times and in bad.
Gifts in any amount have an impact, and help us to serve both established and emerging bibliographers. We are proud of our growing organization and the generosity of our membership. We thank you for your ongoing support of bibliographical study, and the BSA.
