Dear friends and colleagues,
Did you know that all profits from the Peter Lang Publishing Group are donated to charity? The Peter Lang Children's Trust provides assistance and support for socially disadvantaged children by funding educational and social initiatives. While this philanthropic work currently takes place in the UK, it is the eventual goal of the group to establish a comparable Trust in each country in which we do business.
I recently served on a faculty panel at the University of San Francisco; the topic of the session dealt with research and publishing. During the question and answer period, many members of the audience expressed genuine interest and admiration for the work that our Trust performs. The support indicated at this event made me think that it's appropriate that an academic press with a large Education list can use its profits for the benefit of children in challenging environments. To read more about the service provided by the Trust, please see our most recent newsletter. I would like to send these newsletters to you every few months.
If you have any questions or comments about our charitable work, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With best wishes,
