The Future Fund was established to create a source of funding to support programs and projects aimed at advancing the mission of the Division on Women and Crime. Tax-deductible donations can be made to the fund, which will be used each year to support specific projects, as decided annually by the DWC Executive Board.
Donations to the Future Fund may be (but are not required to be) made in honor of someone living or in memory of someone deceased. All donations will be acknowledged on the DWC website at http://ascdwc.com/honor-roll. Donors may also pledge anonymous gifts. Examples of projects or programs that might be funded include support for graduate students to travel to the ASC annual meeting, workshops or special sessions before/during the ASC meeting, small seed grants to help with the initiation of innovative research projects, etc.
In addition to the Future Fund, donations may also be made in support of the DWC General Operating Budget. These tax-deductible donations go to support the expenses incurred at the annual ASC meeting, cash awards given out by the division, and other general operating expenses for the division (exclusive of expenses for the journal Feminist Criminology). Donors will also be recognized, if they choose, on the Donation Honor Roll page.
