Heritage Auction Galleries President Greg Rohan and Co-Chairmen Steve Ivy and Jim Halperin donated $15,000 in support of educational initiatives offered by the American Numismatic Association. Rohan, Ivy and Halperin each presented personal checks in the amount of $5,000 on behalf of Heritage to ANA Executive Director Larry Shepherd on Sept. 20 at the Long Beach (Calif.) Coin, Stamp & Collectible Expo.

"This generous donation will help fund programs such as Summer Seminar, Coins in the Classroom, and classes offered across the country through our School of Numismatics."
In a joint statement, Rohan, Ivy and Halperin said:
"The ANA is the foremost, fundamental resource for our hobby. We are proud to be lifetime members, we support the ANA’s important education mission and we encourage all members to contribute whatever they can to assist the Association."
