Library Matching Grant

You can help us reach our goal!

Study the issues–that’s our mission and it’s why we sent $1200 in books to the Library at the University of Duhok in Northern Iraq to support our project to build capacity for education on women’s issues. An anonymous donor offered a $600 matching grant to purchase the same books for the Vanguard Library. We want our students to be able to study the unique challenges of working with women in the Middle East.

This is where you come in. We need $300 to reach our Vanguard University library matching grant, by July 31st. Just send a check payable to Vanguard University with GCWJ Library in the memo section or click here to give online. When giving online, selectGlobalCenter for Women and Justice on the gift information pull down menu and in comments type “library.”
