Giving to the Department of Philosophy

Perhaps you remember a philosophy class that challenged you to think in a new way. Or maybe you’re grateful for a professor who took the time to help you through a personal problem.  Or maybe you just have fond memories of hanging out on the Cistern.  Whatever brought you here, I hope you’ll consider donating to help the College and/or the philosophy department.  There are a variety of ways to help us in the department.

  • Department of Philosophy's Foundation Account. This is the simplest and most flexible way to support the department.  This money is used to assist the department in a variety of ways, from supporting visiting speakers to helping our students travel to conferences.  To donate to our foundation account just click the button below; when asked for a designation, select “Other” in the designation section and indicate you want to contribute to the Philosophy Fund (Account #R306) in the Comments section.

  • A second option is to contribute to the Tomo Cook Scholarship.  Tomo Cook died while still a student at the College.  To honor his memory, his family created a scholarship to support a philosophy student at the College.  This scholarship supports one deserving Philosophy major each year.

If there are specific initiatives you’d like to support, please contact the department chair, Todd Grantham by email ( or by phone (843.953.8011).

Thank you for your donation!
