I’m a Friend of YALSA—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.

    The Friends of YALSA fund so many amazing programs and opportunities for librarians and students. So many wonderful people apply for these stipends and scholarships, wouldn’t it be nice to fund even more?
