In collaboration with NC State University, we are undertaking a research survey aimed at understanding philanthropy trends within the Lebanese Diaspora. (By philanthropy we mean the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially--but not exclusively--by the generous donation of money to good causes). This survey is for scientific purposes only, it is completely anonymous and confidential, and its results will be used to help the Lebanese Diaspora share its talents, time and resources. This survey is not affiliated with any political or religious organization.
Ameen Rihani Speech
In collaboration with the Rihani Museum in Freike, Lebanon, the center has digitized and remastered a 1937 speech by Ameen Rihani.
