Giving to the Women’s 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.

A. Womens Studies - G.T.E. Foundation
Fund ID Number 264000

For unrestricted gifts to the Womens Studies.

B. Terry Alexander Award
Fund ID Number 280680

This award honors Terry Alexander, the mother of Courtney Alexander, a Women's Studies major who graduated in 2006. Terry was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1982, and worked to raise awareness about the disease until her death in 2007. This award is given each year to a graduating major in Women’s and Gender Studies, who has completed the Gender, Sexuality, and Public Health track, and is interested in a career in health care and/or health advocacy.

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.
