Who? Friends of the Humanities form a community dedicated to strengthening the humanities in the Kalamazoo community and on the Western Michigan University campus.

Why? Given the wide-ranging activities of the Center, private donors can have a real impact. Even smaller amounts go a long way to enhancing the opportunities for citizens, scholars, and students to do research, write books, give lectures, organize discussions, and work in the community.

What? Friends of the Humanities will receive invitations to special events, including a fall gathering of people from the community and University. At events, you will have reserved seating, opportunities to meet and talk with guest speakers and visiting scholars, and invitations to receptions. As a member, you will receive brochures, postcards, emails, and an annual report with detailed information about all of our activities so that you will see how your donation enhances the humanities at WMU and in Kalamazoo.

How? To become a Friend of the Humanities, individuals, organizations, and companies are invited to make an annual gift to the University Center for the Humanities through the WMU Foundation by visiting the WMU Foundation.
