On Giving Tuesday (November 29), consider supporting the Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia, a civic project dedicated to increasing understanding of one of America’s greatest cities.
Based at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers-Camden, the Encyclopedia builds from a foundation of civic engagement and brings the work of leading and emerging scholars to a wide general audience. From abolition and the American Revolution to yellow fever and zoos (with cheesesteaks, rowhouses, and hundreds of other topics in between), the digital Encyclopedia represents one of the most comprehensive, authoritative reference sources ever created for the Philadelphia region.
A generous supporter has offered to match all donations to the Encyclopedia, automatically doubling the value of your tax-deductible gifts!
The Encyclopedia project is made possible through the efforts of Rutgers-Camden students and staff. Funds raised on Giving Tuesday support the work of these dedicated encyclopédistes, and even the smallest donation helps guarantee a future for the project.
The link to donate online will go live on Giving Tuesday. Can't wait to support this exciting project? Call 732-839-GIVE (4483) anytime through November 29.
When you donate, please select "Rutgers-Camden" and then "Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities."
