Donations in support of our Executive Officer, Chris Mulherin are coming in. We thank each of you who have donated already for your support.
The target this year is $60,000. To date we have raised just over $20,000. If each member of ISCAST was to donate $300 we would cover the target easily (although we are happy to receive more if you are able).
