The Center for Ideas and Society remains committed to the effort to ensure that the exploration of values, norms and meanings, central to the humanities, is also central to scholarly and scientific research at UC Riverside. Your donation directly impacts this effort. Your gifts, large or small, one-time or on an ongoing basis, are both welcome and appreciated.

Commemorate Georgia Warnke’s Leadership

To commemorate her commitment, we invite you to contribute in her honor to funds that support dissertation research awards for graduate students.

Support Research and Public Engagement

Private donations make a critical difference: the Center applies gifts to research and public programs, rather than administrative overhead.
For example, a gift of

  • $50 could fund a lecture or colloquium;
  • $500 could support a graduate student’s research into an archive, a cultural festival or a social issue;
  • $1000 could cover travel for a distinguished international visitor; or
  • $2500 could underwrite a major conference.

Sustained Giving

An enduring humanities program or initiative, in your name or in honor of a loved one, can be established through endowment, estate bequests or deferred gifts. Please contact UCR’s Office of Development (951) 827-5611 to explore the benefits of planned giving to the Center.
