The Primary Source Fund
The Primary Source Fund provides vital unrestricted operating support for the organization's mission. Primary Source's constituents — teachers and school leaders, members of partnership districts, business and policy advocates, and community friends — who believe in the importance of international studies are invited to support our mission several times yearly. Partnership and course fees provide only 30% of the organization's operating revenue. Individual gifts are critically needed to enable Primary Source to conduct its courses, study tours, website and library, and outreach to schools. Your gift to the Primary Source Fund supports:
- Curriculum development for programs
- Salaries for program personnel
- Administrative and marketing expenses
- Technology capacity such as ChinaSource and online programs
- Cost and maintenance of program facilities
- Library resources such as books, films, and databases.
Gifts are encouraged to honor a teacher who participates in Primary Source programs or in memory of loved family members and friends. Primary Source will notify the individual or family of your generosity but will not indicate the amount of the gift unless requested to do so. To make a gift in memory or in honor of someone, please contact Lynne Polcari, Director of Development.
Primary Source's fiscal year runs from January 1 to December 31.
