Acknowledgment in the published volumes

We greatly appreciate and recognize every supporter in the front of the books, and sometimes friends ask how that print acknowledgment works. Personal donations are essential, even during production, and we put every gift to good use. Thank you.

However, those who have been able to donate $5,000 or more since the Project began are acknowledged in one of the lifetime supporter categories and are listed in all future publications.
