Donate to the Department of English, Foreign Languages, and Cultural Studies!
Our department is growing, but, as our student numbers continue to increase, many of our department’s needs go unmet by our operating budget. Public funding of secondary education has plummeted in Louisiana over the last decade. For this reason, we are reaching out, asking you to help us foster our growing program through a direct gift. We seek your support in reaching two specific goals:
The Dr. Julie Kane Endowed Professorship
Named Poet Laureate of the State of Louisiana in 2011, author of nine celebrated volumes of poetry, Dr. Kane served Northwestern State for 19 years as Professor of English and Advisor of Argus literary magazine. During her time here, Dr. Kane impacted the lives of countless students. To honor her contributions, we are campaigning to fund an Endowed Professorship in her honor. Endowed Professorships are funds granted annually to support faculty research and teaching activities that serve our mission, and this will be the first in our department.
The Foundation Account of the Department of English
Gifts to our department’s Foundation account are used for projects not covered by our operating budget. Examples include student scholarships and awards, department-sponsored events, community service projects, honorariums for guest speakers, recruiting materials, and student club support.
To make your tax-deductible donation, visit http://www.northwesternstatealumni.com/donations/make-a-gift/ and specify that your gift goes to the Department of English, Foreign Languages, and Cultural Studies, call us at (318) 357-6272, or mail a check made out to Northwestern State University, indicating Julie Kane Professorship or Department of English in the memo line to:

Thank you in advance for your generous gift, and fork ’em Demons!
