Thank you for considering a charitable contribution to SMT. Please contribute online.
The Society for Music Theory plays a vibrant role in the evolution of our discipline by offering members at all stages of their careers numerous avenues of engagement in the field. Our conferences, journals, awards, and grants recognize and promote scholarship in music theory. We disseminate news and information through our website, our biannual Newsletter, and the smt-announce e-mail list. Our interest groups and the smt-talk e-mail list provide forums for discussion and participation in a wide array of areas. The activities of a number of our committees and interest groups support communities that are under-represented within the Society. We offer many services tailored for students and younger scholars, including travel grants (through the Committee on Diversity), CV review sessions, a conference guide program, a variety of mentoring programs, a Graduate Student Workshop Program, and a Peer Learning Program.
The SMT keeps annual dues as low as possible in consideration of members who would struggle to pay higher dues. Because dues do not cover the increasing expenses associated with our manifold activities and services, we rely increasingly on donations. If you are able, please make a tax-deductible contribution so that the SMT can better serve its members. If you or your spouse work for a company that matches gifts, please have your gift matched.
The August issue of the SMT Newsletter will include a list of donors who gave during the past fiscal year, under the following categories: up to $49, $50-$99, $100-$249, $250-$499, $500-$999, $1,000-$4,999, $5,000-$9,999, $10,000 and up. Donors who prefer not to be listed by name may ask to be listed as “Anonymous.”
