You can help support the mission of SDS in many ways. One way is through your financial contribution. All donations are fully tax-deductible. You can donate to our general fund and let us decide how to use the money for programming, core operations, and more. Or you can dedicate your donation to accessibility as additional support for maintaining the website and providing CART and/or ASL interpretation at conferences and meetings; to DSQ as targeted funds for our premier open-access journal Disability Studies Quarterly ; or to membership as a resource through which you help sponsor students to become SDS members. You can attend a conference or other upcoming SDS events, or purchase items when available.

Support SDS by Dec 22 – double your impact when you renew, join, or donate


Dear SDS community and allies,

A generous sponsor has agreed to match every dollar you give or pledge to give to the Society for Disability Studies up to $7,500 – from today until December 22, 2019!

This is a wonderful opportunity to renew your SDS membership for 2020, become a new or returning member, or make a donation or pledge now.

Please visit the SDS website for full information about membership benefits and the 2020 dues structure for individuals and organizations.

We hope you’ll consider making a tax-deductible donation beyond your annual dues payment. Contribute today to make sure that we can match your gift.

Your donations and dues support SDS’s journal Disability Studies Quarterly, make possible a growing range of SDS programs and conference strands, and promote student engagement in the field of disability studies including the Irving K. Zola Emerging Scholar Award and participation in the SDS@OSU Multiple Perspectives conference in April 2020.

Share this news with your networks—encourage your colleagues, students, friends, and organizations to join and give to the Society for Disability Studies before the match runs out!

Thank you for all you do.

In solidarity,

Joanne Woiak, SDS President
