As our September 2017 Donation Challenge comes to a close, Westar Institute proudly announces that $43,070 was raised thanks to dedicated individuals such as you. Together with the Board’s challenge gift of $13,040, September has yielded an unprecedented $56,110 in total giving. We are truly grateful.

Henry Ford once said:

Coming together is a beginning,
Keeping together is progress,
Working together is success

These words clearly express all of the opportunities now available to Westar as a result of the September Challenge. Many of you shared comments with your gifts that will assist Westar Institute in future planning as we strive to meet our goal of advancing public thought rooted in current scholarship.

Thank you for your continued loyalty and commitment to the mission of Westar Institute. Together, we will build on the success of the September Challenge. We look forward to sharing news of the progress your gift has helped Westar Institute to achieve.

Even though this challenge has completed, we still need your help to address the gap between the study of religion and public conversations about religion.  Please consider a donation to the Westar Institute.
