The IAS's 2001 Fundraising Campaign

Five years ago, the IAS was created by committed activists who believed in the necessity of supporting their comrades in the face of incredible resistance to radical change. The resistance part hasn't changed and that's why we're still here. What has changed is that the IAS has now supported over twenty projects by authors from six different countries, projects that might have been put on the back burner due to financial difficulties. We've funded contemporary research, Spanish language pieces, historical studies, and even a play.

It's been a great five years and we're looking forward to many more! Most importantly, because of our generous supporters, many more years of IAS funded projects is a reality. And, the IAS needs your continued support to achieve this. We must raise $20,000 by January 2002 to continue awarding grants to radical writers and publishing Perspectives.

Your contribution will help the IAS meet its 2001 fundraising goal and thus make the following contributions to the development of anti-authoritarian social criticism:

  • The IAS will award $8000 in grants to writers struggling with some of the most pressing questions in radical social theory today. IAS grants help radical authors take time off work, hire childcare, purchase research materials, pay for travel expenses and other things necessary to produce serious, thoughtful works of social criticism.

  • The IAS will publish Perspectives on Anarchist Theory, our biannual newsletter. Perspectives is a unique source of interviews, publishing news, and commentary pertaining to anarchism. It helps keep people informed about anarchist scholarship and encourages dialogue among those interested in this work.

  • The IAS will award $1000 to the best essay on anarchist perspectives on the new social movement. Recent and on-going political activity around the world has excited many people and opened up many issues. Help us to support new thought on how contemporary political activity affects our understanding of anarchism and how anarchism can contribute to this movement.
