JMU Online Donor Form

Thank you for visiting our new Alumni and Giving webpage!

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology relies on the generous support from our alumni and friends to carry out our mission and objectives. There are several ways you can support our Department. To make a donation to a particular account, please use the JMU online donor form and include the account number(s) mentioned below.

Department of Sociology and Anthropology (account #14805) - Gifts designated to the Dept. of Sociology and Anthropology fill the gap for underfunded areas. These gifts are truly valuable because they grant the Department the flexibility to allocate funds to the areas with the most need.

Carl L. Harter Scholarship (account #25475) - Each year, this scholarship is awarded to a rising junior or senior who has declared a sociology or anthropology major, excels in their academic pursuits, and who has made important contributions to the fields of sociology or anthropology.  This is a great honor for a student to receive and your gift to this scholarship will help our department carry on the tradition of recognizing outstanding students.

The Kay Veith Field Archaeology Award (account #16401) - This award is given to an undergraduate student who has shown great promise in the field of archaeology. Your gift to this award will help us continue to support and encourage young archaeologists.

When making a donation, indicate which fund (either by name or account number) in the field "Gift Designation" under the "Donor Information" section. Place the amount of your gift in the field "Other" under the "Please designate my gift to the following" section.
