Opportunities to Contribute

Friends of Monsignor Kerr have launched two legacy funds at Florida State University Foundation to support the Intercultural Educational and Dialogue Initiative. These are The William A. Kerr Annual Fund, which supports current Dialogue activities, and The William A. Kerr Endowment Fund that preserves capital, thereby guaranteeing long term financial support for the Monsignor’s legacy.

Endowment gifts may be earmarked specifically for the Kerr Fund. Alternatively, an independent account may be established in the donor's name with its annual earnings directed to the Educational and Dialogue Initiative.

All gifts directed to the William A. Kerr Intercultural Education and Dialogue Initiative will be used to support students and their educational programs. All research activities related to the Dialogue Initiative that are undertaken by FSU faculty members and their international partners will be supported by research and teaching grants from private foundations as well as from government and international agencies.
