2020 Donations

Last year the WHA asked for donations to its general fund. With an excepted budget shortfall for 2020, all funds went toward covering the costs of WHA operations (in particular staff retention) and costs for printing, shipping, and technology for the conference. 

Donate below to make your 2021 contribution to help support the 2021 conference!

Support the WHA Today!

Each year the Western History Association awards thousands of dollars to scholars, authors, public historians, students, teachers, editors, and publishers. These awards and honors are possible through the generosity of friends, family, and members of the western history community.

The WHA also accepts donations to the organization's operations ("WHA General Fund") and the Graduate Student Meal Fund (GSMF) year-round. Donation's to the General Fund allow the WHA to expand its programs and initiatives through staff growth and institutional sponsorships. The GSMF provides students with the opportunity to receive complimentary tickets to conference meals and events. The WHA urges you to consider donating to this fund to support student attendance and involvement in the organization.

We thank you in advance for your consideration and support. Please contact our office if you have any questions.
