Giving Back

Contributions from alumni and friends of the Department of Sociology provide the means to support student travel to conferences where they can present their research and build professional networks, they allow us to bring in nationally recognized speakers and host workshops on cutting edge methodologies, and they support graduate student awards for teaching and research excellence.

The Department of Sociology’s preferred gift designation is the Sociology General Development Fund (F04809). Contributions to this fund provide maximum flexibility for the department to meet the above needs and priorities, none of which are covered by State of Florida funds.

Donations can be made online using a credit card and the secure site set up by the FSU Foundation. In the designation drop-down box, be sure to select “Sociology Department Annual Fund F04809.” You can also mail a check if you prefer, after completing the form at the FSU Foundation and printing it out. This form will include the mailing address.

For information on other opportunities to contribute to the Department or the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy, contact Katherine Cline Ashler, Senior Director of Development, at or 850-294-3343.
