IDRS relies in great part on its membership fees to maintain this thriving organization. The generosity of its Benefactors, Patrons, Donors, and Sustaining Members, as well as those who make special gifts or include the IDRS in their Will or Trust, subsidize student membership and enrich existing programs. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated and will make your IDRS even stronger.
