Day of Giving on September 13 to raise scholarship funds
On Wednesday, September 13, the Oral History Association will be hosting a Day of Giving where we dedicate the day to fundraising for our great organization. Many of you contributed during last year’s effort which was very successful and allowed us to provide much needed funding for scholarships.
This year, we will be designating our OHA Giving Day funds to special scholarships for oral history students and practitioners affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, so they can attend the 2018 annual meeting in Montreal. I am pleased to announce that we have a commitment from our friends at the Chao Center for Asian Studies at Rice University in Houston and the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program at the University of Florida to each match our efforts up to $1,000 ($2,000 combined). We are grateful for the Samuel Proctor Program and the Chao Center’s generosity which will help leverage the support we get from you and other members. Your contribution will make a difference!
Thank you for once again stepping up and contributing so that OHA can continue its mission as the principal membership organization for people committed to the value of oral history. DONATE!
