In conjunction with the release of the spring 2013 issue of UB Libraries Today, which features a cover story on Jonathan Reichert and his gift of the Victor E. Reichert Robert Frost Collection, the Poetry Collection is happy to announce that Jonathan Reichert has offered additional support in the form of a challenge gift.
In order to establish an endowment for the Victor E. Reichert Robert Frost Collection, Jonathan Reichert has challenged the Poetry Collection to raise $15,000 in the next few months, which he will then match with a $50,000 gift of his own. Once in place, the new endowment will fund future acquisitions of books, literary magazines and papers as well as a yearly lectureship.
We are very excited to begin this new funding opportunity in which all donors will see their dollars matched by more than 3 to 1 up to $50,000. Anyone interested in contributing to the Reichert challenge gift, or who might know someone else who is, should please contact:
Donald Elick, Director of Development
An online donation can be made at giving.buffalo.edu/reichert.
Please help us spread the word!
