SSP Thanks 373 Individual & Organizational Contributors

The Generations Fund is celebrating its next milestone achievement—officially surpassing the three-quarters mark of its goal of $500,000. To date, 337 individuals and 36 organizations have donated to the Generations Fund, pushing the fund past the halfway mark to $386,000.

The fund is an endowment that will provide sustainable funding for the Society for Scholarly Publishing’s FellowshipMentoring, and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility programs far into the future. After we reach our $500,000 goal, these programs are supported by the endowment’s invested funds without future fundraising. This will provide long-term, dependable resources for programs that advance workforce development and inclusion in the scholarly communications profession.

Most recently, significant Promoter Level commitments from Origin Editorial and Wiley have helped the Generations Fund close in on the $400,000 mark. Wiley and Origin Editorial join CCC and Springer Nature as the fund’s top supporters.

Nearly 100 new individual donors joined these organizations last year, swelling our community support to 373 members and friends. SSP will honor many of these generous donors at the upcoming 46th Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts.

“Why did LibLynx support the Generations Fund? We had two reasons,” shares LibLynx CEO Tim Lloyd. “Firstly, because we directly benefit from the programs it supports. We hired an SSP Fellow. Secondly, we need to be intentional. Investing in the future of our industry doesn’t happen by default. It happens because we explicitly choose to do so. I encourage you to invest intentionally in the SSP Generations Fund.”
