Presently, there are four ways to donate:

  • Swag. One way to give to SOPHIA can be done via our CafePress store, where on each item purchased, shoppers make a $5 contribution to SOPHIA. You can order a t-shirt, coffee mug, or messenger bag, among other items.
  • Membership Giving. If you are looking to make a larger contribution to SOPHIA, our society memberships include three levels. In joining, any of the three levels can contribute to SOPHIA beyond the membership dues rate. For gifts over $250, we encourage you to join as a “Sustaining member.” That level of membership includes SOPHIA dues at the regular rate of $25 and makes a $225 contribution to the society for a total of $250. In addition, you can use a pull-down menu to make a larger contribution to SOPHIA. We may create additional membership levels as needed and if donors would welcome such recognition. So, if you’d like to contribute, JOIN US (details about donating this way are presented after you select a membership level).
