Operations Bridge Funding

The Association of Literary Scholars & Critics requested a Chairman's grant of $30,000 to support bridging funds in the Association's current fiscal year. The applicant's programs support literature, literary scholarship, teaching, literacy, and public outreach. It holds annual conferences and publishes a journal, Literary Imagination, in cooperation with Oxford University Press. The ALSC encourage the reading and study, and also the writing, of literature in a culturally vital, pluralistic manner that will appeal to the public as well as professional spheres. It reports considerable and ongoing successes in realizing its mission. However, recent cutbacks in philanthropic support have jeopardized long-term and even short-term planning. ALSC has, to its credit, used this difficult period to undergo a full systems audit, provided pro-bono by a major law firm. The NEH Chairman's Grant of $30,000 will cover expenses during a critical interim period in which new sources of support are expected to put the organization on sounder financial footing.
