Scholarship Fund

The Heinlein Society Scholarship Fund Drive Gifts

We are actively asking for donations to an investment account (established with Fidelity, Inc.) to populate an ongoing scholarship fund to keep our scholarships going at an award rate of four $4,000 (U.S.) scholarships per year.  

Acting conservatively, THS has the goal to fund the capital for this investment at $400,000.  With prudent oversight of THS funds and a starting seed donation from a generous lifetime member of $50,000, we are proud to announce the fund is already over $110,000 towards our goal!

For those that are willing to donate, these donations are fully tax-deductible within the U.S. as allowed by law as THS is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.

For those that are willing to donate $5,000(U.S.) or above by check or electronic transfer via bank account, we would let you pick your choice of a thank-you gift from the Heinlein Society from any of the below including the personally signed books. These books were all donated via the Heinlein Prize Trust, Mrs. Heinlein herself, or directly from trusted sources, and come with a letter of authenticity and provenance. 

For those of you that are willing to donate between $1,000(U.S.) and $4,999(U.S.) by check or electronic transfer via bank account, we will send you a book of our choosing from Heinlein’s personal library.

For those of you that are willing to donate between $100(U.S.) and $999(U.S.) by check or electronic transfer via bank account, we will send you one of Heinlein’s foreign editions listed below and make an attempt to satisfy requests, first-come, first-served. These were given to Heinlein from his publishers but have no special markings.

Items listed below that are struck-through are no longer available as a donation token but remain visible for THS record-keeping.

Smaller donations are gratefully accepted. 

Due to electronic transaction costs, we request that donations to qualify for gifts please send a check to the address below or contact us to see if there are fee-free electronic options for transferring a donation.
