Gifts to the Anthropology Department may be designed for a specific purpose or fund or given to the Department’s Enrichment Fund as discretionary funding. Be assured that it will make a difference! Please contact Department Head Barbara Heath if you would like more information or if you would like to target your gift for a purpose not shown. The Development Offices of the College and University would be pleased to have you ask about other forms of giving, such as bequests, charitable lead trusts, and gifts of the remainder interest in a personal residence or farm, and they are set up to help you evaluate the tax benefits of different gift options. All contributors making gifts of a hundred dollars or more are eligible for University recognition via the Gift Club.
The Anthropology Enrichment Fund
The most general-purpose, flexible fund. This fund supports departmental activities that would not be possible within our operating budget. Examples include support for educational and cultural events on campus that benefit our students, support for student and faculty travel for research and professional development, and modernizing and updating facilities and equipment. The Anthropology Enrichment Fund is supported by direct donations as well as by interest payments generated by the Anthropology Endowment Fund.
