Make a Difference with a Tax-Deductible Gift to SILS

December 11, 2013

Why do you give? Do you give to take advantage of the tax benefit or do something extra for the causes we hold especially dear? Both?

Please consider giving to SILS this year. Give online at (Click on “make your gift now”) as late as 11:59 PM on December 31 and receive a 2013 receipt.

Your giving helps our students, faculty and programs. Thanks to donor gifts last year:

  • 211 SILS students received fellowships, assistantships or other student support;
  • 13 students received research awards to conduct research;
  • 5 faculty members received support for teaching, research and service;
  • 2 distinguished lectures were held;
  • The SILS Library expanded its folklore collection; and
  • The SILS career services program provides tomorrow’s information professionals with meaningful career opportunities.
