Support CREECA

We thank the many alumni, professors, staff members, and friends who have generously given to CREECA to support our mission of research, teaching, and outreach. Private gifts ensure that CREECA maintains its excellence as one of the leading centers for the study of Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Eurasia. Donations support research grants for graduate students, training in critical world languages, and lectures and cultural events that impact the wider community. Gifts of any size are most welcome and gratefully appreciated.

To support CREECA, please consider donating to the following funds:

  • Center for Russia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia (CREECA) Fund
    Created in 2005, this is CREECA’s general fund for supporting our core mission of research, teaching, and outreach. For example, contributions to this fund establish scholarships for language study, provide travel grants for students conducting innovative field research, and bring renowned scholars, performers, and authors to UW-Madison.
  • Oakhill Humanities Project Fund
    This fund was established in 2014 to support the Oakhill Humanities Project, through which UW-Madison graduate students, faculty, and staff volunteer their time to lead courses in the humanities at Oakhill Correctional Institution in Oregon, Wisconsin.  Find more information about the Oakhill Humanities Project on its website.
  • Baltic Fund
    The Baltic Studies Fund at CREECA was established in 2009 to support educational, cultural, and outreach programs related to Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, including the “Perspectives on the Baltics” lecture series.
  • CREECA Community Fund
    Established in 2012, this fund is supported mainly through the generosity of faculty and staff, and allows CREECA to put together a variety of social events—including alumni gatherings—that strengthen our intellectual community.
