Because of the limits of state and federal funding, public universities depend increasingly on donor funds to maintain and enhance the quality of their teaching, research, and other services to the community. These gains also benefit students and alumni by helping to secure the standing of their degrees. The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies always welcomes donations, no matter how modest, in support of its work. All donations are tax-deductible.
If you are interested in discussing the possibility of a donation, a larger gift, a deferred gift, or a named endowment to support something close to your heart, please contact Michael Pendlebury at firstname.lastname@example.org or (919) 515-6103.
The Department has two standing funds that are always open for donations:
The Philosophy and Religious Studies Development Fund accepts donations that support all the Department's operations and activities according to need.
The Philosophy and Religious Studies Student Awards Fund was launched publicly in March 2011. Our goal is to make this fund big enough to convert it into an endowment that will provide support in perpetuity for student awards named in honor of distinguished emeritus faculty who made major contributions to the Department's development. See also The Background Story.
