Senator Thomas Storke Publishing Fund


Your contribution to this fund, established in the memory of the Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, helps underwrite the publication of our yearly publication, which highlights historical research making significant use of SBMAL’s collections. This publication enables us to fulfill our mission to make our resources more accessible by allowing us to share new and innovative approaches to, and applications of, our unique materials.



Dr. Doyce Nunis, Jr. Fund


This fund was established in honor of long-serving SBMAL Board President and distinguished scholar, Dr. Doyce Nunis, Jr. Your contribution to this fund will help us continue to add volumes to our reference library and our rare book collection, which will help increase our understanding of Franciscan history and Missions and the communities with which they interacted.
