Support philosophy. Support the APA.

As 2019 winds down, please consider joining me in making a donation to the American Philosophical Association. Your tax-deductible contribution will help ensure that the APA can continue offering support and services to philosophers and philosophy in the new year.

Cheshire Calhoun, Chair, APA Board of Officers

Supporting the APA is like supporting any other non-profit organization. There is work that needs doing—the American Philosophical Association does that work and does it well. If there were no APA, there would be very few grants specifically for philosophy projects; prizes honoring philosophers and their work; guidance documents on hiring, job searches, good practices, and non-academic jobs; letters with organizational clout sent to administrators thinking of eliminating philosophy programs; large generalist conferences, and with it conference space for the many small affiliated groups that meet at APA meetings; graduate travel stipends that aren’t tied to a particular school; a directory of undergraduate philosophy clubs; or means of collaborating with other professional societies to defend the humanities and academic freedom.

I support the APA because it does for philosophy and philosophers what no other organization can, and I care about how philosophy, philosophy programs, and philosophers fare.

Will you join me in making a donation today?

Thank you for supporting the American Philosophical Association!

With gratitude,
