Your support on the Day of Giving will help us provide research awards to scholars across the country to travel to Columbus and access the special materials in the world-renowned Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum collections.
The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum has amassed the world’s largest collection of cartoon and comics materials, including millions of rare and unique items. Many of these must be accessed on site, but scholars often lack the funds they need to travel here. Your generosity will make it possible for more researchers to visit and take advantage of our distinctive materials.
Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Will and Ann Eisner Family Foundation, doubling the impact of your donation and establish an endowment that will generate funds for the Lucy Shelton Caswell Research Award.
