Support CSNA's Numismatic Education programs. Double your impact.
The California State Numismatic Association supports and promotes various numismatic education programs and activities. These programs include the CSNA library, symposia and seminars, youth numismatics, an enhanced presence on the internet (website and Facebook development), continuance of the print edition of The California Numismatist, and any other related educational activities.
To accomplish this goal, an anonymous donor has pledged $5,000 to establish a new matching fund for numismatic education, the Numismatic Education Matching Gift Fund. Gifts to this fund will be matched dollar for dollar by the donor for a total of up to $10,000 per year for the calendar years 2015 and 2016 ($5,000 in contributions, $5,000 match).
We invite CSNA members and other supporters to join us in making an investment in the future of numismatics. We are most excited about this opportunity to double the impact of your gifts and to inspire others to support our efforts.
