Support the Wilder Symposium

There are many ways to support the Wilder Symposium. Donations of $101, $501, and $1,001, represent our mission to "do one better" than the injustice of the lawsuit’s outcome. Every dollar counts, so we encourage you to make a gift of any amount. Proceeds will benefit the Symposium and support scholarships at the Wilder School for students who demonstrate a strong interest in elevating marginalized voices.

You’ll notice that the traditional gift levels include a few extra dollars.  That is in recognition of the judge in the 1972 trial lowering the available compensation.  The amounts symbolize our hope to continue moving forward by confronting the past to build a brighter future.
