Make a donation to the AHA!
The American Historical Association promotes history education, advances collection of historical documents, disseminates historical research in schools, and offers programs, publications, grants and fellowships for historical studies. Your support of the AHA's endowment will fund a wide range of new initiatives to support the historical profession.
Over the past few years, the Association has undertaken a wide range of new projects, including efforts to establish a National History Center in Washington D.C., a thorough review of graduate training for historians (supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York), and conferences to support research and teaching by two-year college faculty (supported by the Ford Foundation).
We thank all the individuals who generous give to the AHA throughout the year. Without your support, we would not be able to do as much for the history profession and discipline. The American Historical Association thanks you. For a list of people who have graciously given to the AHA, please see the support sections of the past AHA Annual Reports.
Your contribution to any of the following areas will help the AHA advance its mission of promote history in every subject and every venue.
The AHA Endowment
Giving to the endowment ensures that the AHA will continue to function in the future. The endowment provides for the book awards, grants and fellowships, and assures the Association's future.
The AHA Operating Budget
Giving to the operating budget allows the AHA to expand benefits and safeguard current commitments to you that we would not otherwise be able to do because of budgetary restrictions.
Conservation and Preservation Charities of America and
Combined Federal Campaign
The AHA is also a member of the Conservation and Preservation Charities of America, and part of the Combined Federal Campaign.
Designate #2377 in your workplace campaign!
Bequests and planned giving have become important parts to maintaining the excellent programs we have provide at the AHA. To learn more about bequests and planned giving, please contact Robert B. Towsend at 202-544-1118. If you have already included the AHA in your estate planning and have not notified us, please take the time to inform us so that we can properly thank you.
Over the past few years, we have had a number of proposals for new book prize awards. While the Association welcomes such proposals, the Council and the Research Division are concerned that any new prizes should not overlap significantly with the current array of prizes, and should be endowed at a level that will support a respectable prize. If you are interested in establishing such a prize for an esteemed colleague or mentor, please review the prize guidelines for criteria.
The Association is also eager to establish new research grants,
to support the work of junior scholars and the future of the profession.
Please consider establishing a research grant instead of the traditional
book award. You can help to generate new and ground breaking scholarship!
