Support Africana Studies

Your contribution to the Africana Studies Program will help our faculty members provide the best learning experience to our students.

  • The Africana Studies program fund (2965) will enable the faculty to focus on designing, implementing and branding marquee programs ( like a major symposium or distinguished lecture series) that would raise the program's visibility, assist with recruiting studens and faculty, and further engage students across W&M.
  • The Jacquelyn Y. McLendon Prize in Africana Studies (3754) honors Professor McLendon for her leadership and innovative administration that paved the way for ethnic studies at W&M. Donations to this fund will go to honor students of Africana Studies that demonstrate academic and leadership excellence as well as dedication to the program.

You can contribute online now with your credit card, using our secure web server. The contribution form will be pre-selected to direct your gift to the fund you select above.

Deferred Gifts

We encourage you to consult the Gift Planning Office when making a bequest provision in your will, retirement plan, or other estate plan. This office can provide the appropriate legal name and language to ensure that your bequest can be used the way you intend.

Matching Gift Program

Many companies encourage employees, their families, and retirees to make charitable contributions by matching their philanthropic support. Matching gifts can double, or even triple, the impact of your igift. Your Human Resources office will be able to tell you if your employer has a matching gift program and provide details on how to secure the matched funds. You may also use the College's Matching Gift Search page to see if your company has a matching giving program.
