There are several ways to donate your resources to the Rural Sociological Society. We appreciate your consideration to donate to the RSS.
Donating to one of our funds
• Endowment Fund
• Frederick Buttel Fund
• Diversity Travel Fund
You can also make a contribution to these funds when you renew your membership. Your contributions to these funds can also be done by sending a check in the mail. Please be sure to specify which fund(s) you would like your donation to go towards.
Contributions in Wills
Some of our members have chosen to make monetary contributions to the RSS through their wills. This is best arranged with your attorney. These contributions can be made to a specific RSS fund, or to the RSS in general. If made to the RSS in general , the RSS Council and Business Office will determine the best use for these generous donations.
Sponsoring the Annual Meeting
The RSS holds an annual meeting each year in a different location across the United States and Canada. If you choose to sponsor the annual meeting, you will be recognized in the annual meeting program. You may also choose to place an ad in the program, or have fliers inserted into the Annual Meeting program bags.
