It costs money to maintain our current level of first-class lectures and activities. The national AIA pays travel costs and honoraria for three lectures each year but our local society covers lodging, meals, and reception (an average cost of $300 per lecturer). All other lectures are funded entirely by the local society; this costs on average about $1200 per lecture. In addition there are incidental costs such as website maintenance and postage. (The various universities at which we hold our lectures generously provide the venues at no cost to the society.)
Occasionally, AIA-SWTAS raises funds through activities such as museum field trips, raffles, and other activities. Your support is welcome at these opportunities.
Anyone who would like to sponsor, in part or in full, a lecture, reception, or any other activity should contact Ms. Laura Childs at firstname.lastname@example.org
or our treasurer, Mr. Joe Lamm at email@example.com
. You can donate via check at any of our events or send to Joe Lamm at:
8033 N. New Braunfels #300D, San Antonio, TX 78209.
Please make out checks to AIA-SWTAS. AIA-SWTAS is a 501C3 organization; we can provide a receipt for tax-free donations! Anyone who has already provided a donation should ask Laura Childs or Joe Lamm for a receipt.
We also want to apply for cultural, historical, educational, or similar grants to any organization that offers them. Please let us know of any of which you are aware. Help us to make our society live up to its full potential.
Your help is truly appreciated!
