If you are interested in donating to the Rhodes Project, we want to help you put your money toward work that most resonates with you. Would you like to support world-class academic research investigating the gender gap in leadership? Give to our research. Are you passionate about the lack of visibility when it comes to women's success and achievements? Donate to our Profile Series. Do you believe women need more platforms and online spaces from which they can safely develop public voices or contribute their knowledge or skills to society? Donate to our blog. Please scroll to the bottom of the page to learn more about contributing to the running costs of the Rhodes Project.

Researchers Kate Blackmon and Susan Rudy are focussed on three projects this fall. They are preparing a paper to be submitted in January to be considered for a special issue of Socioeconomic Review on "Elites, Economy and Society." They are also revising a paper for submission to the Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences entitled "Work-life balance: including lesbian perspectives." But their primary focus is on the completion of a book on the gender gap in leadership to be submitted to Oxford University Press in December for publication in 2016.
You can help make our research available to the public by sponsoring an Executive Briefing or a talk and video recording. Those who donate above £100 will be listed in the acknowledgements.
We currently have over 200 profiles of women Rhodes Scholars.
For an example, hear more from Joy Buolamwini (Tennessee & Jesus, 2013), featured left, the first scholar to do the Rhodes Service Year.
You can sponsor one scholar profile for £25 or a bundle (5 profiles) for £100.
If you would like to commission profiles for a specific election year or constituency, please e-mail our Contributing Editor at email@example.com.
Beginning this autumn, the Rhodes Project will bring on three to four regular blog contributors.
Whilst we will continue to accept external submissions (see our blogging guidelines), these roles are designed to allow contributors to develop a portfolio of high-quality pieces related to gender and feminism. We will provide editorial support and a platform from which we hope to connect contributors to other opportunities for publication.
These are currently volunteer positions. You can support a contributor and donate to the operation costs of this programme by clicking the donate button below.
The Rhodes Project hosts a number of events each year. These events range from celebrations of major achievements in the fight for gender equality, lectures by world-renowned professors and writers on gender and feminism, to smaller talks and workshops. See our events page for more details.
You can donate to our events budget by clicking the button below. If you would like to commission or collaborate on a specific event (e.g. a talk by one of our researchers or a workshop with women and girls at your school or University), please e-mail our Executive Director, Susan Rudy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to make a general donation to the Rhodes Project's programmes please use the button below. The running costs of the organisation are currently supported by Dr Ann Olivarius and her law firm, McAllister Olivarius, but we are in the process of seeking additional funding options. If you would like to discuss your contributions to the Rhodes Project in more detail, please e-mail Helen Caldwell at email@example.com to arrange a time to speak.
All donors will be thanked in our annual and quarterly reports which are widely distributed to our beneficiaries and stakeholders. A donation of £1,000 or more will make you a "Friend of the Project" and you will be featured prominently in the "About Us" section of our website. You may do this in your own name or in the name of someone you wish to honour.
