To finance its activities, AALIMS depends on the support of individuals and organizations who share its mission of promoting dispassionate research on Islam and Muslim societies.
Urgent needs include:
- Funds to finance participation by graduate students in our activities. About $750 will cover expenses for one student.
- Funds to bring to our events scholars from outside the United States, including the Middle East and South Asia. About $2000 will cover expenses for one scholar.
- Funds to hire a person to turn our website into a major intellectual resource for social scientists around the world. $30,000 would cover part-time staff support for one year.
- Funds to organize and run in 2015 a major three-day conference in the Middle East or South Asia. $30,000 would cover half the anticipated expenses. The remainder would be raised from local organizers.
AALIMS is a non-profit corporation. Contributions to AALIMS are tax-deductible in the United States under Section 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code.
