You may direct your donation to one of several funds: the ALTA General Fund, the ALTA Endowment, and the ALTA Travel Fellowship Program. The General Fund helps support the day-to-day operations of the organization, including paying for staff and contract employee salaries, mailing services, the annual election, and the annual conference. Support for the ALTA Endowment provides the means for our organization to sustain growth, expand its outreach, respond to the changing needs of literary translators, and further literary translation in the U.S. and the world. The ALTA Travel Fellowship Program provides funding for emerging translators to attend an ALTA conference, giving them access to the extensive network of translators, authors, and publishers already working in the field.
Donations are put toward the General Operating Fund by default, but you may choose to donate to a different fund by selecting it from the dropdown menu below.
