We have generated these tools as part of a fundraising campaign, "Making Waves," designed to make our site fully sustainable in the future.

As a Friend of the ISE, you will help create a legacy for everyone with a passion for Shakespeare.  An annual gift of $25 or a one-time gift of $100 will assist the ISE in maintaining and improving the resources we offer. You will also be contributing to the development of websites devoted to other Renaissance dramatists that the ISE incubates—the Queen's Men Editions and Digital Renaissance Editions.

If you are a resident of Canada, you will receive a tax receipt for a portion of your donation—$20 for an annual gift, $80 for a one-time gift.

Where do the funds go? As anyone who maintains a scholarly educational website will tell you, the digital medium requires many hours of thoughtful research and content development, computer programming, graphic design, and editing in any given year to bring a polished and up-to-date resource to our users. It is important to keep websites current: to use the full capabilities of new media and to provide effective interfaces for new devices like smartphones and tablets. All this puts extra pressure on an organization to find the means to adapt the website to match the expectations of our readers.

The ISE is a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping administration costs to a minimum. Our commitment to the Friends of the ISE is that all funds raised in the campaign will go to an endowment that will ensure continuing support for the site.
