Securing ICA's Future
Under the leadership of Joseph Cappella, a capital campaign was begun in late 2000. Donors can make either one time donations or yearly commitments for up to five years. The goal of "Securing ICA's Future" is to "increase ICA's student travel fellowship funds, increase support for our journal and Yearbook editors and increase the diversity and size of our research awards." ICA is also seeking new publishing venues and better participation in national dialogue about social issues in which communication and media play pivotal roles. A contributor may choose a specific fund or the general endowment fund.
