This year our upcoming fundraising campaign will feature the theme “Back to School,” signifying not only the time of year we start our annual campaign, but also the core mission of VRAF – “to provide educational and training opportunities in support of broad access to cultural information in the digital age.” Details of our upcoming fundraising campaign will be announced later this month.

Moreover, funds gathered from the AmazonSmile program will be earmarked for the Legacy Lecture program at the VRA conferences. At our last annual conference in Philadelphia, the opening convocation presentation by Jane Golden, the Executive Director of Mural Arts Philadelphia, was sponsored by the VRA Foundation. It was an inspiring presentation showing how a public art form can cross its boundary and reach out to public history, civic engagement, restorative justice, and even civic discourse!
In other words, the more you shop, the more substantial and inspiring programs and lectures VRAF can bring to your conferences. Because of VRAF’s 501(c) (3) status, every time you shop online using the above link or the Amazon link on both VRA’s and VRAF’s homepages, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to VRAF. So please bookmark this page on your Internet browsers, and help us build the foundation for your profession!
Best wishes for a wonderful start to the new academic year!
