MLA received $9,101.00 in donations from individuals and MLA chapters to offset the 2021 conference hotel penalty, along with MOUG’s generous $3,000.00 subvention to MLA during the COVID crisis. Participating chapters included Atlantic, California, Midwest, Mountain-Plains, Southeast, and Texas. In addition, many individuals donated to the MLA Fund at that time to support MLA. In calendar year 2020, donations to the MLA Fund totaled $5,985 and, at the time of this writing, $1,095 for 2021. Thank you for your generosity!
A list of 2020 donors can be found on the MLA website under ‘Support MLA’. The 2021 list will appear after the end of calendar year 2021. Please note that the MLA Fund does not include additional donations made to other named funds, such as those used for travel, research, and publications. Its purpose is to allow MLA to become financially sound and able to sustain unexpected fiscal losses.
