LASA Funds

LASA has created several funds to make it possible for members and friends to support the primary objectives of the Association.

The LASA Endowment Fund*: supports LASA Congress Travel for residents of Latin America and the Caribbean and provide funding for special programs not covered by ordinary income. Contributions may be directed to the General Endowment or to the Humanities Endowment, the latter providing support specifically for scholars in the humanities.

The LASA Congress Travel Fund provides direct travel support for each succeeding Congress to participants traveling from Latin America and the Caribbean.

The LASA Student Travel Fund provides direct travel support for each succeeding Congress to student participants outside Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Indigenous and Afro-Descendant Travel Fund provides travel support for indigenous participants at each succeeding Congress.

Gifts to the Endowment may also be made through Life Memberships and Bequests.

All gifts are tax-deductible on a U.S. federal income tax form as a contribution to a non-profit organization.
