Our Fundraising Goals
The Centre for Scottish Studies seeks to establish a permanent endowment of $5,000,000, the income from which would be used to support the ongoing activities of the Centre, including our lecture series, support for visiting scholars, post-doctoral research, support for the field school, our archival and oral history projects, and to continue the community outreach and engagement activities of the Centre. Building an endowment would allow the Centre to hire a permanent professor in Scottish Studies, run regular community programs, and provide scholarships to students doing Scottish Studies.
All gifts receive a tax receipt. Financial support for the Centre's activities has come from Simon Fraser University, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the St Andrews and Caledonian Society, as well as numerous individual donors. We thank all of our generous donors and supporters.
