I’m a Friend of YALSAâ€”are you? Each year YALSA funds $16,000 in stipends, scholarships and awards, which are funded by donations to Friends of YALSA. So far this year we’ve raised $8,665 and our goal for August is to raise $2,000. If we meet or exceed our goal of raising $2,000 by Aug. 31, a donor has agreed to contribute another $1,000, increasing our monthly total to $3,000!
Every donation helps! It only takes a moment to make a tax deductible donation of any size at www.ala.org/yalsa/givetoyalsa/give, or you mail a contribution, using the printable mail-in form from the web site. Complete the form and mail it with your donation to: YALSA, 50 East Huron St., Chicago, IL 60611.
Your tax-deductible contribution is an investment in the future: one that pays real dividends by helping to create opportunities for librarians and library workers serving youth across the country.
