The Annual Fund: Ways to Give

The BSA Annual fund supports the mission and work of the Society overall and helps us to secure a vibrant future for the study of the material text through fellowships, events, and publications. Please consider helping us to grow by making a contribution to our Annual Fund.

Our Annual Fund supports the free, accessible programs that have kept people engaged in bibliography through the pandemic. This makes a difference to our bibliographical community. After our roundtable celebrating Dorothy Porter’s “Early Negro Writings at 75,” an attendee wrote us saying, “I appreciate that webinar was free to attend. In the wake of COVID-19 budget cuts, my institution’s funding for professional development has been cut.” Keeping our programs free and open to all makes a difference.

Gifts in any amount have an impact and help us to serve both established and emerging bibliographers. We thank you for your ongoing support of bibliographical study, and the BSA.

A gift of stock may provide more benefits than a cash gift. When you make a gift of stock to the BSA, by eliminating the capital gains tax that would be due upon selling the stock, you receive tangible tax-savings and benefits while also supporting our mission.
