Giving to the Press
We are a non-profit publisher, and many of our most important books are made possible by private giving from generous individuals and foundations. Contributions to the Press enable us to:
- Publish important scholarly books that do not recover their costs.
- Fund the development of ambitious large-scale projects.
- Support especially costly works such as translations and illustrated books.
The Neil Harris Endowment Fund was established in 2008 to support the publication of heavily illustrated, historically significant books. The Fund honors the innovative scholarship of Neil Harris, the Preston and Sterling Morton Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Chicago, and it is supported by contributions from the students, colleagues, and friends of Neil Harris. See a list of books published with the support of the Harris Fund.
The Susan Elizabeth Abrams Fund in History of Science supports the publication of books in the history of science that reflect the standards of Susan Abrams, science editor at the Press from 1979 to 2003. See a list of books published with the support of the Abrams Fund.
