Thank you for supporting the work of the Canadian Letters & Images Project. Response to what began as a small endeavor to put online a limited number of letters continues to expand at a rate which is both immensely gratifying but also functionally challenging.

From an administrative point of view CLIP has always been run without the benefit of any full-time staff, and with only limited paid assistance to the Project Director though undergraduate work-placement positions at Vancouver Island University, along with much appreciated website administration. Your donation can help us to realize our goal of the funded staff position(s) so urgently needed at this stage of the project, so that we may ensure that no collection needs to be turned away, and that all collections received are posted online in a timely manner with the care and attention that they so justly deserve.
