The IHRC thanks all who have made end-of-year donations to support the Center's operations and in support of fulfilling the Vecoli Chair Endowment Fund. The University of Minnesota Foundation will accept donations on behalf of IHRC by mail, online or phone. For information, visit Foundation (and read further).
When designating a gift to IHRC, please identfy the donation as being for the College of Liberal Arts and write instructions to direct funds to the Immigration History Research Center. The IHRC's priority fund is the Rudolph J. Vecoli Chair in Immigration History.
The Director of the IHRC holds the Vecoli Chair, and funds allow the Director to train graduate and undergraduate students in immigration history, develop courses and innovative research projects, provide scholarships for community archival training and visiting researchers, and to develop major projects such as Digitizing Immigrant Letters.
