Annual Fund

From climate change to pandemics like COVID-19, cultural heritage preservation and endangered language documentation to migration and displacement, the role of artificial intelligence to healthcare and trade, the global challenges defining our world are best understood in a holistic, human context. Anthropology gives us the tools to do so—and they are needed now more than ever. Through anthropologists’ work, we can view our past and present with depth, empathy, and complexity—and begin to envision a more just and sustainable future for all. 

With your philanthropic support, we can work together to expand anthropology’s impact and realize a better future for all.
