Make a gift to the Department of Anthropology

Gifts support research and educational programs including seminars and workshops, and enable our department to host visiting faculty and lecturers from other institutions. Philanthropic donations also lend support to graduate student researchers, and activities that enable undergraduates to become more closely involved with the academic life of the department. We sincerely thank our donors for their generosity, and hope you will consider making a gift to the Department of Anthropology.
