The American Thomas International Association

 

The American Thomas International Association was established to promote the Thomas International activities more effectively in the United States.  Currently, its chief activity is the Ralph McInerny Center for Thomistic Studies, and we look forward to creating other research institutes in the future.

The Association represents a community of committed supporters who help to provide a stable source of support for TI activities. We are convinced that our future depends on the enthusiasm, friendship, and support generated by our shared commitment to the goals of the Thomas International project.   

Interested individuals should contact TI, specifying the kind of help they would like to offer, whether in the form of cash donations or in-kind gifts (including stocks, bequests, books, subscriptions).  Among the most valuable forms of assistance would be simply to meet other people who might find the activities of TI attractive.
