Support the Future of HES! 

In 2020, HES successfully concluded its first major capital campaign, “Foundations for the Future,” in honor of the Society’s 60th anniversary. The campaign recognized that this is a time of both challenge and opportunity for our organization. The challenge is to sustain the health of HES and our journal at a time when costs are rising and support is dwindling. The opportunity is to continue to provide an intellectual home for educational historians and graduate students across institutions, fields, and interests.


Foundations for the Future raised $100,000 in endowment for three important areas designated by the Board: The History of Education Quarterly, Graduate Student Support, and HES General Endowment.

With financial pressures exacerbated by the Covid pandemic and its impact on university budgets, we continue to seek endowment to ensure the long-term health of the History of Education Society. Your contribution of any size is welcome, and will go into the endowment fund that you specify below. Thank you for your commitment to HES!
