WHY GIVE TO SAR?

How do we solve problems in the space where tradition and innovation meet? Together we can advance intellectual inquiry and creativity so that new ideas flourish and grow.


By understanding humankind—both past and present—we can better address how to strengthen economies, improve education, sustain the environment, restore health and nurture communities—today, and for generations to come.



Your support ensures that SAR continues to provide one of the most unique learning environments in the country for anthropologists, social scientists and Native artists.

Your support means fellows in our programs have the time and space to explore challenging topics, discuss critical social issues, and expand their own creativity.

Your support makes it possible for our communities to enrich their lives by connecting with scholars, artists, and an extended network of innovative thinkers.
