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.
Giving to the Womens and Gender Studies Program
You can invest in the program and provide opportunities to students and faculty through either planned giving or outright gifts that often carry special tax incentives. Your donations will be used to help us expand our educational and scholarly mission.

C. Vivien Hartog Endowment
Fund ID Number 362370

The Women’s and Gender Studies Graduate Certificate Program awards two prizes annually in memory of Vivien Hartog, who was a Ph.D. student in Sociology at Stony Brook and a Women’s Studies graduate certificate student. The $3000 Vivien Hartog Best Graduate Student Teacher Prize is given to the graduate certificate student who has not only received consistently high evaluations for their teaching, but has also demonstrated a strong commitment to social justice in and beyond the academy. Two annual travel grants of up to $500 each are awarded for graduate certificate students to attend the Feminist Theory Workshop at Duke University. The workshop is designed to introduce both faculty and students to the latest work in feminist scholarship and theory and includes keynote talks and seminars.
