ASA Solidarity Fund

The ASA is pleased to announce a new fund – the ASA Solidarity Fund. In 2018, the association's leadership as represented by the National Council embarked on a planning period for initiatives designed to give back to the membership. Many of these initatives will be organized under the banner of and fueled by the Solidarity Fund. To launch this overarching strategy, the ASA is raising funds to subsidize conference costs for precarious members to defray expenses for the 2019 Honolulu Annual Meeting. Our goal is to raise enough funds to provide substantial support to at least 50 students, contingent faculty, unemployed or underemployed members, and non-academic activists. Your generous gift will ensure that the Honolulu Annual Meeting is inclusive and accessible for all members, especially those at the heart of our association. 

Please note: Our donation platform accepts both recurring and one-time gifts. Gifts at all levels are appreciated, and a custom donation can also be specified via the form below.
