Support philosophy. Support the APA.


Becko CopenhaverThere is still time for you to make a tax-deductible donation to the American Philosophical Association before 2019 ends. The association has big goals for making philosophy better and stronger in 2020 and beyond, but it needs your help to achieve them. Every contribution makes a difference. I hope you will join me in donating today.

I donate to the APA because it is the most direct way to support undergraduates, graduate students, junior faculty, and departments at a time when philosophy and higher education face unique and serious challenges. Please join me in making a commitment to our community, particularly to those of us whose present and future in the profession is less secure. Our donations support teacher training, advising graduate programs on how to support graduate students in a difficult market, effective defenses of departments in danger of being eliminated, and a strong presence in the national conversation about the future of higher education.

Like Jennifer Nagel and Lanier Anderson, who wrote you in the last weeks, I am deeply saddened by the recent, sudden loss of our friend and colleague, Ken Taylor. Ken was a past president of the Pacific Division and a dedicated member of several APA committees. I continue to be inspired by Ken’s enthusiastic commitment to our community as I mourn our loss. Along with Jennifer and Lanier, I made my annual donation in memory of Ken. Please join us in supporting the work of the APA.

Every dollar you provide will help make a difference for you and for the future of philosophy. If everyone made a donation—whether it be $10, $100, $1,000, or $10,000—imagine the impact we could have!

Donate now.

Thank you for supporting the APA.

With gratitude,
