Funding efforts for “Île en île”

ile_r

Île en île, the largest database of French-speaking literatures of the islands and their diaspora exists mainly through the tenacity and generosity of Thomas Spear, its founder, who maintains the site almost alone. The diverse international recognition now requires more concrete resources to maintain this important archival project. We should support the effort of regular updating of Île en île, which has been carried out for twenty years thanks to the generosity of donors and users. The ultimate goal is 20 000 €, to hire a part-time person who will assist with updating and developing of the site as well as answering correspondence and requests.

Here is the link to the online campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/deja-20-ans. [The Île en île Association and the Lehman College Foundation are non-profit organizations.]
