Support and Enhance through the Sustainers’ Fund
The AFS Sustainers’ Fund donations will be used to support and enhance current programs and services. Your contribution assures that we continue to foster the Journal of American Folklore, AFS prizes, support for students, travel stipends, audiovisual equipment at the annual meeting, and the like, and may allow AFS to realize our goals to improve and expand our web-based resources, provide additional professional development opportunities, and multiply our advocacy efforts for individuals, programs, and institutions.
Invest in the Future through the Endowment Fund
The AFS Endowment Fund is for donors who want to make a present gift or a future pledge that will be invested rather than spent. Investment income from these gifts will strengthen the Society and field for the long-term. Since the endowment-building campaign began in 2003, many of our colleagues have made present or future gifts; some have shared stories about why they gave. Contact Jessica Turner, Executive Director, 812/856-2346, to discuss future gifts.
Support AFS Prizes and Stipends
You may choose to direct your gift toward specific resources, like the Graduate Fieldwork Grant, annual meeting financial support, international and student participation, and the Leonard Norman Primiano Endowment.
