Giving to the Cultural Analysis and Theory Department
 
A. Cultural Analysis & Theory Fund for Excellence
Fund ID#226820
The purpose of such accounts in this case, the Cultural Analysis & Theory Fund for Excellence is "to cultivate, sustain and further excellence". Excellence, as we all know, comes at a price that the State is less and less inclined to pay. As a result, we are now allowed to except contributions from faculty, staff, corporations, individuals, foundations and alumni.
