Since its foundation this past spring the fund has given away nearly $70,000 to more than 150 graduate students and contingent faculty in need. Many thanks to all those organizations and individuals who have donated via WCC or SCS. See Official WCC Website for the Fund, Profile of the fund in Eidolon
If the fund is to continue to meet the growing need, we need a significant replenishment of the coffers.
You can help in several ways.
RIGHT NOW, please consider buying raffle tickets for one of the three drawings: 1) an unbound archival version of the Barrington Atlas; 2) Lifetime Membership to the SCS; 3) 5 years of AIA-SCS annual meeting registration costs. The cost of the tickets goes directly into the fund for immediate use. The drawing will be held live on Facebook noon EST, Friday, Sept 11.
Also, if you are an author or a crafter or have a special talent to share, consider offering your book, handiwork, or services for auction. Before you do so, take a look at other offers so you get a sense of the tone and style of the auction. Once you have done this, just fill out the auction item donation form and Liv Yarrow, who is running this auction, will be in touch.
Bidding opens 9 am EST, Tuesday Sept 8 and closes noon EST, Friday Sept 11. There are some truly fantastic items.
