SABR

Philanthropy

SABR members have always been a generous group, even when not asked! SABR began an annual campaign to solicit donations from members during the 1993-1994 renewal drive. That first campaign raised just over $5,000.

Every year since then SABR members and friends have increased their giving. In the 2000 renewal season, 381 members contributed over $15,000 for SABR’s General Fund, Research Committees, Development Fund and for the purchase of microfilm. In 2001, over 600 members stepped up to the plate to donate over $28,000 – a fine increase over the previous year. In 2003, Dan Ginsburg and Paul Hirsch established the Society’s formal Donor Program, for annual giving, and the Legacy Circle, a means for members to include SABR in their estate planning. Within a few years, annual member donations increased dramatically. The 2010-2011 year was the sixth consecutive year of $50,000 in gifts to the Society, helping to carry on SABR’s mission.
