Donations to ASECS

Your contribution can shape the future of the organization as well as sustain the work begun during the Society's first half-century. Please consider making a gift to ASECS in support of our primary mission: to advance the study and teaching of the eighteenth century and encourage scholarly work that crosses the boundaries between academic disciplines. 

Endowed and other funds enable members to travel to special collections and research libraries, recognize achievements in scholarship and teaching, and support the participation of graduate students and contingent faculty in the Annual Meeting.  Other funds underwrite arts programming at the Annual Meeting.

These programs are not funded through membership dues. They are made possible by the additional generosity of our members, past and present, as well as that of foundations and grant-making institutions.

Please help  by making a donation to one or more of the funds listed below.  For information on the goals of individual funds, visit  You may use your credit card to donate through our secure server (below) or mail a check/money order (payable to ASECS) to: ASECS, 1300 Elmwood Avenue, KH213, Buffalo, NY 14222.  Please be sure to note the fund(s) you wish to support.
