Giving Tuesday


Today is #GivingTuesday, a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the American Philosophical Association today.

Dominic McIver Lopes

Most of my activity as a philosopher is solo work—I write text and I engage my students, relying on others mostly for advice. Yet, the big challenges that philosophy faces can only be addressed through collective action.

We need to attract students from more diverse backgrounds and shepherd the most talented of them into lives of scholarship. We need to defend the professional rights of our peers across the country and advocate for their fair treatment. We need to help the public and, sometimes, our deans and provosts to understand the value of philosophy. We need to plan for the future of the discipline and continue to build the digital and other infrastructures that support us all.

The APA is the most effective body we have for acting together. That’s why I contribute to the APA.

Join the #GivingTuesday movement by making a donation to the APA. Donate now.
