How to Give
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.
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.
We welcome gifts in any amount—your participation is what is important. Contributions to AFS, a non-profit organization, are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. The amount of your contribution will always remain confidential, but unless you would prefer to remain anonymous, we will add your name to our alphabetical list of donors.
Donations may also be sent by mail to the American Folklore Society, 800 East Third Street, Bloomington IN 47405 USA; indicate which fund you’re supporting in the memo line.
