Giving Tuesday

Dear Members and Friends of the GSA,

As many of you know, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are now followed by Giving Tuesday, when all of us are urged to contribute to institutions, causes, and charities that we consider important. 

Could we at the German Studies Association ask you to consider a special donation on Giving Tuesday or later in the month of December?

As costs go up and programs expand, we need your generous support in order to continue:

  • providing a dynamic intellectual home and scholarly community to all of our members across the globe--through the conference, publications, seminars, networks, the work of the Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies, and other activities;
  • offering our early career members a supportive start in the profession;
  • being an increasingly important voice in advocating for German Studies, the humanities, international studies, and transatlantic collaborations in effective ways;
  • maintaining and extending a wide range of partnerships and collaborations with organizations and agencies in North America and abroad that share and support our mission, our activities, and our concerns.

Given rising costs and rising expenses, we can’t be as effective as we need to be in supporting and expanding these services unless we can count on voluntary member contributions. A growing number of GSA members have stepped up and donated this past year. Can we count on you to do so? Every contribution helps! And please note that the GSA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

You can donate online using a credit card, or you can send a check to our Treasurer at: Gerald Fetz, GSA Treasurer, 545 North Ave. E., Missoula, MT 59801.

Online donations can be made at

As always, thanks to each of you for your generous support of the GSA in the past, and all best wishes for a joyous holiday season!

Best regards,

David E. Barclay, Executive Director
