Raising Funds for an IMS Peter Hall Early Career Prize

As previously announced, IMS is seeking contributions to the IMS Peter Hall Early Career Prize fund. If you would like to donate in memory of Peter, there are three ways:

1. By credit card via the IMS website: https://secure.imstat.org/secure/orders/donations.asp

2. By US dollar check, made payable to “IMS – Peter Hall Endowment Fund.” Mail to: IMS – Peter Hall Endowment Fund, 3163 Somerset Drive, Shaker Heights, OH 44122.

3. By electronic transfer or wire: please email Elyse Gustafson erg@imstat.org for bank transfer details.

(For US residents, the donations will be tax-deductible. Per Internal Revenue Code Section 170, a contribution to an IMS Fund is considered a charitable contribution and is tax deductible under US tax laws. We confirm that this donation does not benefit you in any monetary or material fashion.)

IMS will invest the fund as they do all of their long-term accounts. It would be helpful if you could let us know the amount of your donation by emailing Jon Wellner, jaw@stat.washington.edu. While this information would assist us in keeping track of progress toward the initial $40,000 goal, offering it is of course completely optional. We look forward to receiving donations from you and thank you very much for your support in advance!

Make your donation go further: Miki and David Donoho have generously agreed to provide a matching gift for donations received!

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
