This year the Friends received 22 proposals with requests totaling nearly $41,000. The Selections Committee carefully consider each proposal and may recommend no, full, or partial funding of proposals. A complete list of recipients is available online.
The Annual Gift is made possible through endowment distributions, membership dues, and book sale proceeds. Made possible through special gifts, membership dues, and book sale proceeds, the Friends donated over $37,000 for books, videos, recordings, periodical backfiles, music scores in 2011.
