We are very happy to accept donations through the secure UC San Diego gift site! Search for ‘Summer Program for Women in Philosophy’ or simply click the button to the left (or here) to be taken directly to the SPWP donations page. All donations will be marked specifically for SPWP (UCSD gift id #2676), and will be invaluable in helping to cover the operating costs for the program.
SPWP began in 2014 with the aim of helping redress the significant gender imbalance in the field of philosophy. So far, SPWP has operated on something of a shoestring budget, cobbled together from various generous intramural and extramural sources. However, many of these sources of support are either non-renewing or have scaled back over time. Our continued operation therefore requires extramural fundraising from institutions and also from individual donors like yourself, so if you believe in the mission of SPWP, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution by following the links! (We appreciate contributions of any size, from a few dollars to more substantial gifts if you are able.)
JANUARY 2016 UPDATE: UC San Diego’s Executive Vice Chancellor’s Office has generously promised to provide matching funds of $100,000 once we raise that amount ourselves! We recently received an extremely generous contribution of $50,000, which puts us halfway toward this target — your own gift will help close the gap and help the impact of all of this year’s gifts get multiplied!
