GSA Giving Tuesday 2020

Dear members and friends of the GSA,

Tuesday, 1 December, is being observed throughout the United States as Giving Tuesday. Even as we have had to reinvent ourselves from the ground up this year, we’ve heard from many members how important the German Studies Association remains to you as a space for sharing work, for scholarly community and advocacy, and for thinking together about the future of the field. 

This is the work to which the GSA remains committed, and we could not do it without your help. If you are able this year, please consider donating on Giving Tuesday to support our efforts to foster and maintain an open, inclusive, and accessible community of scholarship. Our *donations page* lists the most important funds and initiatives; in this time of need, we would draw your attention in particular to the recently launched GSA Community Fund, which helps defray costs of conference participation for graduate students and precariously employed faculty.

On behalf of the GSA, we are deeply grateful for your support and wish you a peaceful and healthy holiday season.
