A Friend Is

Someone who, although not a member, wants to be kept informed about the Association's upcoming lectures and other activities.

A Friend can also be a non-member who contributes to HAALSA financially for a purpose other than membership, or by a gift of property.

Contributions from a Friend are entirely volun­tary and always welcome. They may be dedicated to a specific award fund or "other expenses". Funds for the latter help to cover costs associated with our annual lecture series. Our Contact Information and Donation form (hereafter the Donation form) includes a section for such contributions.

Our Donation Form:  Can be accessed via our "How to Donate" page, which can be accessed via the link displayed in the How to Donate section (below).

Friend's Benefits:  What Friends Receive from the Association

Friends enjoy the same material benefits as Members—but without the warm satisfaction of knowing that they have helped to support our awards programs and our annual lectures series.

Before continuing you may wish to read our Privacy Policy.
