WPSA 75th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign Continues

As part of the WPSA’s 75th Anniversary, the Association launched a $100,000 fund-raising campaign to create a travel endowment, which will provide much-needed support to help graduate students and faculty attend the annual meeting. The Association is continuing the campaign until the 2023 conference. If you have not contributed yet, please do so. Every year, the WPSA offices get request from graduate students and faculty who do not have the funding to attend the annual meeting. This will enable us to provide some support. Even small contributions are appreciated! As of now, the Association has raised over $27,000. We are on our way, but need more of you to help!

Donations to the Association can be made on a one-time only basis or spread out over multiple months or years. The WPSA is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization; as such, your contributions are fully tax-deductible, as permitted by law. To make a donation, please visit the WPSA website at: https://www.wpsanet.org/about/donate.php
