Annual Funding Opportunity

Dear Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table Members and Supporters,

As of November 1, 2017 through December 31st, or through the conclusion of the ALA Annual Campaign, ALA will be sponsoring a fundraising match campaign where an anonymous donor will match gifts made to the ALA Annual Fund. Every gift to an ALA unit from an individual donor, up to $1,000, will be matched, with the matching funds capping at $10,000 total per unit, and $100,000 overall.

This is a great opportunity to support the various activities in GLBTRT.  Please consider giving to one of the following areas:

  • GLBTRT Emerging Leader Sponsorship – We’ve sponsored an Emerging Leader for the last three years; the last two years, Emerging Leaders have been working on the creation of the GLBTRT’s Archive and 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2020.
  • GLBTRT Stonewall Book Award Endowment – These annual awards have been highlighting exceptional English language works focusing on the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience since 1971.
  • The GLBTRT General Donations fund which ensures that your gift is applied to essential projects most in need of funding.

We welcome every donation, of whatever amount — and it will be doubled! Simply go to, select Round Tables, GLBTRT, and your preferred donation destination from the ones listed above.

Thank you for supporting the work of the GLBTRT and for continuing to make the us one of the largest round tables in ALA!
