By now, you are aware of our End-of-Year 2016 fundraising campaign. Please, if you have not yet done so, consider making an end-of-year donation to MEMRI today.
Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, MEMRI monitors the media of the Middle East – print, broadcast, and online – and sends you translations, reports, and analyses to "bridge the language gap" between this region and the West. No other organization is doing this important work.
On a daily basis, U.S. and Western government officials turn to MEMRI and MEMRI research for assistance with and a deeper understanding of confronting the challenges emanating from the Middle East. MEMRI is funded solely by our donors – you. Please support MEMRI today with a tax-deductible donation.
To date in 2016, MEMRI has sent 870 emails to subscribers, and has published:
- 75 Inquiry and Analysis papers
