LURe Spirit Night

Spirit Night Poster Draft 1

If you missed out on LURe’s Used Book Sale (or just want to contribute more) don’t fret! There’s still more opportunities to help support the journal!

On Monday, March 19, LURe will be holding a Spirit Night hosted by American Pie Pizzeria in Carrollton, GA.

Stop by any time from 5:00 – 9:00 pm, grab some pizza, and contribute to LURe. For every voucher turned in at the cashier, 15% of the order’s proceeds will go towards LURe.

Some of LURe’s staff will be on site to distribute vouchers and answer any questions you may have!

Bring the whole family! We would love to see you!

LURe’s Used Book Sale was a huge success!

LURe would like to thank everyone who participated in the LURe Used Book Sale this week, including the UWG chapter of Sigma Tau Delta and members of the LURe staff, who helped set up and run the table, as well as everyone who donated and bought books for the cause!

As you can see from the photos, the Used Book Sale was a great success, with much involvement from the students and faculty/staff at the University of West Georgia.

It is because of you that LURe was able to raise money towards our NEH grant, which will match all of the profits we are able to raise before April 30th.

Once again, thank you for supporting LURe and the humanities!

Want to know how your donations will help support LURe?

LURe Journal has been preparing a few fundraisers recently. Every donation and contribution is going towards LURe’s expansion moving forward. Here’s how:

LURe and NEH Final

Because the NEH grant is a challenge grant, this means they will match the amount we manage to raise over the next two years (up to $25,000 per year), effectively doubling the contributions you’re adding to! The more you contribute, the more the NEH contributesa win/win!

With your help, LURe will accomplish so much more!
