At the request of our members, we have created additional levels beyond the regular membership option to allow members to support THE MANUSCRIPT SOCIETY with additional funds. Contributing, Sustaining, Benefactor and Patron memberships help us provide a better organization. In addition to the standard member benefits, these members also receive recognition in the Manuscript Society News on the Donors List. Members in the United States may also receive tax benefits. Check with your financial advisor for guidance.
