Gifts of any size have an impact, directly supporting our faculty, students, and programs. The CIR program benefits from annual unrestricted gifts to the Dean’s Fund for the Social Sciences as well as from specific contributions directed toward a particular interest. You can support CIR through donations of cash, gifts of securities, by taking advantage of your employer’s matching gifts program, or through a planned gift. Please contact us directly for more information.

Please submit your gift using our secure form
