Alumni & Giving


Contributions from alumni, friends, and corporations provide funds to purchase special items and services for the Philosophy Department that we otherwise could not afford.  They also help promote projects and programs that otherwise might not be possible.  Every contribution helps in some way towards the continuing growth of the department.

Some employers are willing to match charitable donations to higher education institutions.  So, check with your employer to find out if matching funds could enable you to double your personal contribution.

Thank you for your support!
