Mormon Studies Annual Fund & Endowment
For donors who want to provide holistic program support. The immediate-use Annual Fund maintains the program day-to-day and is ideal for donations under $20k. The Bushman Program Endowment creates long-term support for foundational programs like fellowships, library acquisitions, and annual conferences.

Joseph Smith Lecture Endowment
Each fall, our program sponsors a public lecture on religious liberty and civic leadership. Past speakers include President Dallin Oaks and Senator Tim Kaine. Your gift can directly support the endowment and ensure continued funding for this nationally-esteemed series.

Library Acquisitions & Research Fellowships
Fund new library acquisitions, donate materials, or support fellowships for original scholarly research in our expansive collection.

I feel honored that there would be a Mormon Studies Chair established at this university, in a program that is perhaps the premier Religious Studies program in the country. . . . I want to express my support, and thank all those who have supported and made it possible.
